Synopsis

Summary

Goodbye is another word for “new beginning.” A young Cherokee girl learns this when her family moves away from their city home. The family is moving back to their ancestral land, and the girl excitedly draws in her sketchbook as her mother drives them to their new beginning. The young girl can’t wait for what lies ahead, like eating a feast with her big, extended family and playing with her cousins by the creek.
