 Film Synopsis 

Witness women and young girls reclaiming long forgotten ancestral stories, revealing personal connections to these narratives and in the process, raising awareness to a community whose tribal land is 20 miles outside of Manhattan.  Together, Levart and the women, embark on an intimate creative process that transports viewers into an indigenous, nature-loving world; ancient, contemporary, personal, and unabashedly - matriarchal.
