2012. USA. Directed by Maya Stark, Adi Lavy. When a Navajo couple finds out their children have a disorder that makes exposure to sunlight fatal, they also discover that their reservation is a hotbed for this rare genetic disease. Dorey and Yolanda Nez confront cultural taboos, tribal history, and their own unconventional choices to learn the shocking truth: the consequences of the Navajos' Long Walk—their forced relocation by the U.S. military in 1864—are far from over.
