With the government and settlers staking claim to the Cree Indian ancestral lands and hunting grounds the slowly starving Cree are forced from the land they call home. Torn between loyalty to their leader, Chief Big Bear and bitterness at the broken promises of the white man, the Cree are desperate. An epic, gripping saga of betrayal, desperation and courage of a people's love for their land and of their leader's struggle for justice and dignity.
