The Comanche Nation is suffering from drought, famine and illness. The outcry to the Great Spirits seems to go ignored until the Shaman informs the people that their selfishness has resulted in their suffering. A sacrifice of their most valued possession to the Great Spirits will end their suffering. While the people make excuses on why their possession is not the most valuable, a little girl will make the ultimate sacrifice. The result is a little blue flower that blankets the state of Texas each and every spring.
