Cecile's granddaughter, Janelle, sets out to understand her Mamare's denial and playfully plots her own mission to open her Memere's eyes to the richness of their heritage. As the two face-off in a battle of the wills, Janelle soon realizes that her Memere's will not be easily convinced that being Metis is something to be proud of. In this heartwarming and extraordinary journey, Janelle's mischievous and persistent prodding of her grandmother reveals a generation's legacy of shame and the profound courage of the human spirit to overcome it.
