After her husband is killed, Frankie Chasing Bear wants a fresh start, a new way of life. But in 1951, that's not easy, especially for a Lakota woman. Frankie quickly learns that raising her son, Harold, to revere his Lakota heritage will be a challenge in the white man's world. Searching for a way for her son to respect his ancestors but also embrace a future of opportunity, she begins a Lakota Star-pattern quilt. As she tells him, "A bed without a quilt is like a sky without stars." But Frankie's determination is not without trouble. Federal Agent Nick Parker, for instance, is the last man Frankie wants to trust. He's not a true Lakota, and he's Christian. Will Frankie learn that love is the most important ingredient for her son's quilt, and life itself?
