Plot summary: Set on the Red Crow Mi'g Maq reservation, 1976, this powerful film tells the story of Aila who at the age of 15 is the weed princess of Red Crow, selling enough dope to pay the sadistic Indian agent, Popper, to keep her out of imprisonment in the residential school St. Dymphna's. But when Aila's drug money is stolen and her father Joseph returns from prison, the precarious balance of Aila's world is destroyed. Her only options are to run or fight... and Mi'g Maq don't run.
