Mink is a witness, a shape shifter, compelled to follow the story that has ensnared Celia and her village, on the West coast of Vancouver Island in Nuu'Chahlnuth territory. Celia is a seer who must heal her village with the assistance of her family.
While Mink is visiting, a sea serpent falls off the house front during a fierce storm. The old snake has left his terrible influence on Amos, a residential school survivor. The ordeal that unfolds pulls Celia out of her reveries and into the tragedy of her cousin's granddaughter.
