A Finnish-US co-production tells about the demonstrations at Standing Rock in North-Dakota. Lakota women risk their lives as they rise to oppose the building of the Dakota Access oil pipeline accross sacred lands. The demonstrations grow into an international movement, which the film follows from the perspective of a few frontline women. The startling images conveyed by video cameras of violently dispersed demonstrations remind us of the history of the civil rights movement.
