Summary "Two feisty elders of the Timbisha Shoshone Tribe struggle with the US Government and their own tribal council to overcome injustice and save their ancient tribal culture in Death Valley, California - the hottest place on Earth! Through legends and stories, Pauline and Maddy Esteves reveal the rich history of their people. They travel to sacred sites, harvest pine nuts and search museums for early Timbisha basketry. Historians and supporters tell more of Pauline and Maddy's fight to save their culture, ancient language and basket making art. One day they confront their enemy directly - the Chairman of the Timbisha Tribal Council. They forcefully debate him on their grievances. He is unmoved. Undaunted, they continue to follow their ancestor's wishes and fight to save their culture before it's too late." -- Film's website.
