Lori is a quiet, contemplative bookworm. Lana is an outspoken adventuress. Different as they are, they are first cousins, sisters in the Lakota way.
When both befriend a Hmong girl new to their school, the discovery of a culture so strange to them and so rich with possibilities brings them together as never before in an experience of life and loss.
As the girls learn of the moons of the Lakota calendar, they also learn that the circle of life is never broken, even when death comes to one of them.
