A rare divine intervention occurs that enables the spirits of wolves that were killed 100 years ago to manifest themselves in a wooden structure that was made by a sheepherder, the man responsible for their deaths back in the early 1900's. This wooden structure is amongst the items belonging to this sheepherder that were kept in his shed after he'd been dead for many years. The property is being sold so the contents of what is left in this shed after being vandalized, is sorted and the trash is hauled off to the city dump. On the way there the stand is intercepted by the niece of this sheepherder who claims it only because it has sentimental value. She is unaware that the spirits of 31 wolves inhabit this stand that have cleverly choosen her as their medium at a time when their own species is endangerd by extinction despite the laws that were established to protect them. They are back 100 years into the future to assure their survival and proclaim their rights to live. They make themselves visible to her which totally consumes her every day life in order to make a stand. She seeks the guidance of a tribal medicine man, his image visible with the steam of her shower in her vanity mirror that leads her to him. The Spirit wolves are only here to save their species from extinction when the wolf population is down to only a few known survivors in the year 1998. She meets the man in the 'mirror' who is a tribal medicine man who knows all about her and her obligations to save the wolves. Together, they summon the spirit wolves and send them back to where they came. This story is sure to captivate audiences with it's abundance of human emotion and supernatural activity that sets off any imagination with the possibility of it's true existance in our world today and based on a true story.

Our last chance to unite as one, working together to protect all wild creatures of the earth and the correlation between preserving their existance and saving our own planet from permanent destruction.
