This video explores the spiritual world of traditional Native medicine through Mary and Ed Louie. The sound recordist of this film, Don Howell, is diagnosed with throat cancer during the filming process. He chooses to be treated with modern medicine and seeks Mary and Ed Louie for guidance and healing. Though many healing practices and ceremonies are considered too sacred to be filmed, the couple decide to allow Don's doctoring to be recorded for the purposes of teaching others.
