The young boys, Niigaani and Bineshinh, find comfort in the night sky and they reflect on the many starts and so many stories that the boys spend night after night observing and sharing. After a beautiful show of northern lights, Niigaani explains how the northern lights are the spirits of relatives who have passed. "Nookos spirit is up there in the stars," says Niigaani to Bineshiinh. Nooko was their grandmother and one of the many sights they see in the night sky.
