Rose (Jennifer Podemski), a hip Native Law student, can barely tolerate her well-meaning but clueless adoptive mother (Tantoo Cardinal). Feeling at odds with her idyllic white suburban existence, she searches for her natural family. Through Rose's vivd hallucinatory nightmares, we see a Native youth trying to survive on the streets of a big city. As he is pimped, bullied and bashed, Rose experiences his terror and isolation. When she finally meets her brother (Brandon Oakes), they have a hard time bridging the gap between his harsh reality and her sugar-coated existence. Perhaps she has been too quick to write off what she does have.
