A woman's haunting visions reveal a Catholic priest's sinister plot to silence her mother from speaking the truth about the atrocities that occurred at a Native American Boarding School. Riveting and suspense-filled, this powerful drama focuses on the lasting impact of the cultural genocide that occurred in such schools. Inspired by true stories told to her by many of her family members and friends who attended the Indian Boarding schools.

She is currently working on post production for her new film with the Robert Redford Story Initiative at Santa Fe Art and Design University.
