A twelve year-old Tohono O'odham boy and his grandfather embark on a hazardous journey across Arizona's desert to the summit of legendary Baboquivari Peak to seek the spirits of their ancestors. Treacherous mountain passes, drug smugglers, and the mystery of ancient petroglyphs test their dedication to one another on a quest to the place where I'itoi, the first O'odham, walked Mother Earth.
