Chickasaw Nation citizen Mary Thompson Fisher's extraordinary life is extended a tribute in this moving look in a culture in transition, and the way a single woman used her voice to keep traditions and stories living. Raised in West, Fisher abandoned home to pursue her dream of being a celebrity, only to discover that her real calling was in home all along. By Chautauquas to even the White House and Broadway, Fisher traveled the world acting Native American songs and stories for heads of royalty , American presidents, along with state. Featuring Chickasaw citizens both in front of and be-hind the camera, this poignant portrait starring Q'orianka Kilcher ("The New World") and Graham Greene honors a woman whose particular story was the most inspirational one she never told. -TCFF database
