A one-woman show about first language reconnection. Aunt Celia, in her final
days, refuses to speak English, challenging her niece Margaret to become a
fluent speaker of Ucwalmicwts. The Residential School system forcibly took
Aunt Celia's language from her; now, she courageously reintroduces it into
her family fabric.
