This docudrama reimagines an unaired TV interview from 1966, between folk singer, activist and legend, Buffy Sainte-Marie and CBC interviewer John O’Leary. Born on Piapot Cree First Nations Reserve, Saskatchewan, Buffy released her first hit ‘Universal Soldier’ in 1964, a pacifist song that was covered by Donovan, Joan Baez, and Glen Campbell among others. The film interprets Sainte-Marie’s inquiring mind, political activism and the influence of her Aboriginal roots that formed the foundation of her career.
