[Marie Wilcox is the last living speaker of Wukchumni language, a Native American dialect originating with tribes native to Central California.

With the help of her family, Marie fights to preserve her past in order to build the future -- all while strengthening the bonds between family in the present. Poetic, fascinating and emotionally affecting, this short documentary combines intimate camerawork with traditional interviews to immerse viewers in Marie's world: her history, her family and her values.]
