An epic tale of universal human struggle
This was a beautifully filmed and epic cinematic treat. What a commitment to the story of human loyalty to family and land. Check it out. Koodos to the entire 'family' who were responsible for this wonderful film. It is truly universal. The focus of this film is the daughter of the Chief and her stepbrother. Her real mother became shaman and healer - who left the tribe because her husband (the chief) took another woman. He took another woman as a nursemaid for his daughter because his wife (now shaman) could not produce enough milk to sustain his girl child. It is a tale of dreams, which includes animal protectors and future events. It involves the dream and spiritual realm in a lovely background of this real world within its stark and inspiring creation. It is an acceptance of life and death and the struggles in between.
