Based on the true story of Wilma Mankiller, who went on to become the first woman chief of the Cherokee Nation, and Cherokee organizer Charlie Soap, who united their community to bring clean drinking water and indoor plumbing to Bell, Oklahoma by building 16 miles of waterline on a volunteer basis. In the process, they inspired trust and reawakened universal indigenous values of reciprocity and interconnectedness.
