Red Crow Mi'g Maq reservation, 1976: By government decree, every Indian child under the age of 16 must attend residential school. At 15, Aila is the weed princess of Red Crow. Hustling with her uncle, she sells enough dope to pay Popper, the sadistic Indian agent who runs the school, off. The precarious balance of Aila's world is destroyed when her drug money is stolen. Her only options are to run or fight... and Mi'g Maq don't run.
