Based on the novella, “Angelique Abandoned”, by James R. Stevens, Angelique’s Isle is a harrowing true tale of perseverance and survival on Lake Superior. During the copper rush of 1845, Angelique Mott and her French-Canadian voyageur husband Charlie are left for dead on a deserted island by a corrupt copper-hunter. A young Anishinaabe woman, the newly-married Angelique must confront her inner demons and struggle to survive the harsh winter as Charlie succumbs to the power of the Windigo.
