Film description

The Northern Lights shine down on a prairie city with a notorious history of anti-Indigenous racism. Seeing the lights, Stephanie, a 2 Spirit nêhiyaw, sadly remembers her missing mother. Not wanting to be alone, she decides to go see her girlfriend, Jackie. She gets into a cab with a seemingly harmless, but nosey male settler cab driver. As Stephanie tries to evade increasingly invasive questions from the driver, the ride takes a dangerous turn when he locks her in the vehicle and speeds out of the city. In a deserted lot she is faced with this predator. When all seems lost she remembers what her mother taught her about the Northern Lights and calls on their power to turn her fate around.
