A moving portrait of a family in crisis, Rustic Oracle tells the story of eight-year-old Ivy (Delisle) who joins her mother Susan (Moore) in a desperate race against time to search for her older sister who’s gone missing from their Mohawk community. While their journey to find answers is one that no family should go through, their shared hope helps mother and daughter come together in love amidst difficult circumstances.
With the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women continuing to make headlines as a national tragedy, filmmaker Sonia Boileau, working through the eyes of a young girl, tells a story that is personal, intimate and humane.
