Ancestor Eyes

After getting sick, a young Native American woman, Willa, returns to her mother’s home where they both must come to terms with her illness. Willa’s mother, who had been a long time ‘shut in’, begins venturing outside with her camcorder, taping the sunrise and mountains, bringing the outside world in to the bed ridden Willa. Pain turns into a source of inspiration, igniting her mother’s gift for storytelling and ultimately paving a path of magical transformations.
