Washington, D.C., District of Columbia

Inspired by an ancient Iroquois tale, Shelley Niro’s contemporary story set on the Six Nations Reserve follows the Mohawk artist Mavis (played by Kateri Walker), who is still in a long period of grieving for her lost husband Jesse (Michael Greyeyes). In an effort to to extinguish the memories that haunt her, she immerses herself in her painting. But when an upcoming art exhibition requires Mavis to embark on a road trip in the company of Bug (Eric Schweig), she is forced into the possibilities of the here and now and the difficult task of letting go.
