The Comanche People experience drought and famine as a result of their selfish acts against the Earth. In order to restore life to the Earth, they must make a burnt offering of their most valued possession. One night after everyone is asleep, a young girl named "She-Who-Is-Alone" burns her most precious possession, a warrior doll, and scatters the ashes. When she awakens she finds herself surrounded by beautiful blue flowers. As the People celebrate, the rains return and they praise the sacrifice of the young girl.
