When sixteen-year-old Franklin Starlight is summoned by his ailing father, Eldon, Franklin’s sense of duty clashes with the deep resentment he feels for his father’s many years of absence, neglect, and drinking. Still, he agrees to his father’s final wish to be buried in the warrior way, deep in the rugged backcountry of British Columbia. The two men set out together on one last journey, as Eldon offers his son an inheritance Franklin never could have imagined—slowly revealing his life’s hardships, joys, and sustaining hopes.
