Over the last decade, an oil boom in North Dakota has seen the state's population double with primarily male workers flocking to the region. With this dramatic increase, has come an influx of drugs, crime and sexual violence.  Juxtaposing the ravaged yet starkly beautiful landscape with personal testimony from young Indigenous women living on the reservation, Nuuca is an evocative mediation revealing the connections between the rape of the earth and the violence perpetrated against Indigenous women and girls.
