Description

The year is 1860. A priest, sent on a mission to an Indian village on the coast of British Columbia, believes he is successfully converting the people to Christianity. He is unaware of the anger, selfishness, and love that dictate their actions, and that lead to fatal consequences.

With multiple viewpoints and haunting images, Pauline Holdstock recreates the collision between two cultures and the illusion of contact between a white European priest and native peoples of the west coast.
