Every summer in the interior of British Columbia, Canada, the community of Xeni Gwet’in travels 200km by horse and wagon from their home in Nemiah Valley to the famous Williams Lake stampede. Despite a nearly fatal accident that took place the year before, the riders continue their annual tradition, celebrating their tenth year of a new generation of Xeni Gwet’in riders. The visually breathtaking documentary follows Chief Jimmy Lulua as he leads both youth and elders on an epic journey through the vast landscapes of Western Canada.
