A portrait of grief, healing, and community
"Moving and therapeutic...speaks of ritual, connection, catharsis, confession, meaning making, and many other features of healthy coping."
Margaret Baim, Harvard Medical School

"The audience for this film is vast: high school students, counselors and their patients, community workers, Native American organizations and--hopefully--the general public. A powerful video, not soon to be forgotten. Highly recommended. Editor's choice."

Four Stars, Video Librarian

"A realistic portrayal of a Native community dealing with traumatic problems in a positive and unified way. It is "healing" just viewing this video."
