Nine-year-old Yvette Wong helps out in her parents' cafe. She's incredibly smart but is put in the slow learners' class because of her skin colour. Her mother has charged her with a secret – to never tell anyone she's part Cree. Based on the true story of Senator Lillian Eva Quan Dyck, Cafe Daughter is the powerful, funny and touching tale of one woman's journey to reclaim her heritage.
