Forced to grow up far too fast due to the death of her mother 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 Joseph is released from prison, it signals an end to her reign as the reservation's drug queen. No longer able to pay her "truancy tax" to the reserve's corrupt and sadistic Indian Agent Popper (Mark Antony Krupa). She's thrown into the residential school’s dungeon.
