This short documentary is the portrait of an 88-year-old woman who lives alone in a log cabin without running water or electricity. Augusta is a non-status Shuswap Indian living in the Williams Lake area of British Columbia. She recalls past times, but lives very much in the present. Self-sufficient, dedicated to her people, she spreads warmth wherever she moves, with her songs and her harmonica.

    I agree with the other commentators, this is an incredible film and it is a testament to the strength of women all over the world.

    A wonderful portrait of an independent woman in the Cariboo.

    What a beautiful film, of a remarkable woman-fiercely independent, funny, strong... she is such an inspiration. Thank you Anne!
