Three young men—Flinch, Bryce, and Rupert—have vandalized their community and are sent by its Elders to live nine months on the land as part of the circle sentencing process. There, the young men learn to take responsibility for their actions and acquire the humility required to return home. But, when they do return, will they be forgiven for what they’ve done?

Nisto Mekwana (Three Feathers) explores the power and grace of restorative justice in one Northern community and the cultural legacy that can empower future generations.
