The newlywed couple have been left with few provisions and as the winter sets in they begin to starve. With Charlie beginning to demonstrate strange behaviour, Angelique - a devout Christian - struggles with her faith and must rely on the teachings she received from her grandmother in order to survive the harsh winter. Angelique’s Isle is a harrowing tale of perseverance and a testament to the resilience and strength of Indigenous women. Based on the true story of Angelique Mott.
