Emily is travelling on a bus, suffering from morning sickness, and reflecting on her past life – on jobs she has worked, relationships she has had, and her years of growing up as a First Nations girl. Years of making the wrong choices, especially with men, have left her confidence shaken and with a legacy of unexpected children. Without much money and not even a suitcase, Emily, through her independence and determination, rises above the stereotype of a tragic figure. As the bus rolls west from Toronto across the prairies various passengers engage Emily in conversation, some with evil intentions of taking advantage of her, but throughout these incidents we discover Emily’s hard-edged attitude for survival and her instinctual savvy.
