- Richard Cardinal cry from a diary of a Métis child.
- A moving tribute to Richard Cardinal, a Metis adolescent who committed suicide at 17, in 1984. Removed from his home at age 4 because of family problems, he was then moved between 28 foster homes, group homes and shelters in Alberta for the next 13 years. His diary upon which this film is based is a sad legacy of a troubled youth, his life and death, and Alberta's child welfare system. His death prompted an inquiry into and reform of Alberta's child welfare system.
