In a special series, acclaimed filmmaker David Sutherland (The Farmer’s
Wife, Country Boys) creates an unforgettable portrait of Robin
Charboneau, a 32-year-old divorced single mother and Oglala Sioux woman living
on North Dakota’s Spirit Lake Reservation.
Sutherland follows Robin over three years as she
struggles to raise her two children, further her education, and heal herself
from the wounds of sexual abuse she suffered as a child.
Robin’s battles in tribal court with her ex-husband
for custody of the children, even after he is convicted of abusive sexual
contact with his daughter, illuminates how
serious this problem is on the reservation. Her quest to heal her family, find a man worthy of her love, build a
career, and fulfill her goal of returning to her reservation to help prevent
the abuse of women and children, takes her on an intimate and inspiring journey
full of heartbreak, discovery, and redemption.
