The Shenandoah Valley is the setting for a women’s lacrosse team as they travel on a quest for a winning season. The Native American connection and the spirituality of The Creator’s Game are portrayed through the eyes of Kate Warner as she prepares for her final season at tiny Spotswood College. It is a season that borders on disaster and hints of glory. The teams’ destiny is forged by their schedule, in game-to-game, week-to-week challenges from opponents, starting in Maryland, and ending in North Carolina. The season originates in the cold spring of the Appalachians in the shadow of the Blue Ridge of Virginia.

The experience and camaraderie of being a college athlete is uniquely portrayed through the team’s diversity. Cat, Marisol, and Brooke are the freshmen who face the challenge of the game as well as the discord that begins with a new coach. A coach intent on change, changes that weaken team spirit......But, the team regains its strength through the leadership of Kate, Taylor, and Andi; the captains. What they do is often dramatic and humorous. The Spotswood Stars are tested. The pulled hamstrings, bruises, and the stress of academic pursuits are only part of the distractions. Each distraction, each setback, exposes their character. The travel, the daily life…… The Stars run the gamut of emotions as they “team-up”, to defend and promote the ancient Native American sport of lacrosse. In the end, the younger players rise up to the captains’ challenge. In a crucible of conflict...the "Little Sisters of War" are created.
