Forced to grow up far too fast due to her mother's death and the incarceration of her father, Aila (Kawennahere Devery Jacobs), 15, joins her Uncle Burner (Brandon Oakes) in the drug business by selling weed to her peers. When her father is released from prison, it signals an end to her reign as Red Crow's drug queen. No longer able to pay her "truancy tax" to the reserve's corrupt and sadistic native agent Popper (Mark Antony Krupa), she's thrown into the residential school’s dungeon. Visited by visions of her mother and brother Tyler, Aila organizes a plan to get back at the system that placed her family and their people in the oppressive state they live in.
