Dolores Plunkett is a grandmother and one of the cultural leaders of her tribe, the Yavapai-Apache Nation. Watching her people succumb to obesity and diabetes, Dolores desperately wants to improve the health of herself, her family and her tribe. Daughter Coralie sits on the tribal council, and she too wants to see a change.
Coralie's husband Brian has been in Iraq with the Marines for the past year, and the family have rallied to support her and their three kids. The extended family regularly eats together, with sisters and cousins dropping in for snacks and desserts. The family's diet includes whatever's quick and convenient, which also means unhealthy.
Jillian will travel to Arizona to help Dolores and Coralie turn the health of their people around by working on themselves first. As Dolores shares the history and traditions of her people with Jillian, she begins to see that by reclaiming their past, the Yavapai-Apache nation can reclaim their future.
