Imagine life being created from a perfectly preserved Neanderthal embryo, that was placed in a surrogate Quanoot Indian mother. Modern-day Ember Ozette is the result of this experiment; she is raised among the Quanoot but spends her life wondering about her otherness, searching for her people, who she vividly sees in her dreams. Performer Irene Bedard, recognizable as the voice of Disney's Pocahontas, is an excellent choice to recount this moving, if fantastic, tale. Her nasal, diphthong-less Native American clarity allows her to marvelously produce various voices and dialects as she brings to life Ember and her family and friends. Through superlative character distinction and excellent timing in building suspense, Bedard achieves an entertaining performance of a unique and fascinating story.
