It is winter in the village and the sun is not shining. The snow is piling up, trapping the people inside and making them irritable. Frog comes to relieve the tension by telling the story of how the Great Spirit sent Raven to free the musicians of the sun, so that the people can have music and the world could have light.
This series follows the adventures of Raven, the most powerful deity of Aboriginal mythology and a cast of humans as they re-tell the traditional stories of the Northwest Coast First Nations People, the Kwakwaka wakw, the Squamish and Haida.
