After returning to her Minneapolis roots, April Dakota is excited to open a wellness center on Franklin Avenue to serve the Indigenous community in the heart of her hometown. She’s counting on a grant from the Franklin Avenue Task Force, but the competition is fierce and her proposal is rejected. Desperate to keep her dream alive, she partners with Esme, a non-Indigenous woman who uses April’s revolutionary ideas for her own gain. But the Task Force pulls together to defend their treasured Franklin Avenue and fight for the future of their community. Drawing on Minneapolis’ rich Dakota and Ojibwe heritage, this Guthrie-commissioned comedy examines the myriad facets of contemporary Native life.
