LITTLE CHIEF OF THE GASPE

A simple and quiet narrative charts a young French Canadian boy's path from superstition to courage, when he loses the symbol of bravery his father had left him when he died. Little Chief is an Indian statuette Jacques and his mother look to as the keeper of their courage. Their world seem to go to pieces when Jacques loses Little Chief, but his rescue in the midst of a storm brings the realization, to mother and son, that fortitude rests in themselves alone.
