This movie follows the story of Roxanne Landry and her extended family and how they struggled

during the Summer of Smoke with physical and mental stress.

Roxanne and her uncles share their stories and experiences in their traditional home in Fort Providence, and the nearby small community of Kakisa that was evacuated during that fire season. Other’s story’s are woven into Roxanne’s impassioned storytelling to complete a picture of the summer that was so shrouded in smoke.
