Medical student Grace Hudson (Laura Harris) is married to native American Jon Beardsley (Adam Beach) who is writing a thesis about the relationship between native beliefs and modern science. She is devastated from his death after a short sickness and finds solace with his best friend Brandon Eckhardt (Corey Sevier). Jon had left Grace a series of messages and she goes on a journey for him.

I like both Harris and Beach. I was expecting a romance with a dash of native spirituality. Beach is rarely the romantic lead. Then the movie kills him off in the first five minutes. What the F. It then replaces him with a hunky white dude. What the freaking F. There has to be a better way to learn native culture other than to kill off the native romantic lead. I guess spreading his ashes is a solid reason but it doesn't help me. Here's my rewrite. A loved one leaves his ashes to be spread by Grace with a cryptic list of native clues to locations. She seeks the help of fellow student Jon. Together they do the road trip and end up falling in love while presenting the movie's thesis of native understanding's connection to modern science. The flashbacks in this movie come off flat and it becomes a listing of native beliefs. The sincerity is good but it doesn't make it a good watch.
