When Riley gets suspended from school, her mother sends her to spend a day with her grandmother. Although Riley is resistant at first, the loving and strong nature of her grandmother opens Riley’s world as she learns something new about her Diné culture and language. Director Stacy Howard was born and raised on the Navajo Nation in Mexican Water, Arizona.
