An FBI man with Sioux background is sent to a reservation to help with a murder investigation, where he has to come to terms with his heritage. Slowly he rejects the intimidating tactics of his fellow FBI agents, who are not so interested in solving the crime as covering up an incriminating situation with the locals, and as he becomes more tuned to his heritage, the locals begin trusting him. Based on actual Reservation occurrences of the '70s. Written by

The video clip which William Dawes shows Ray Levoi in the beginning of the film is actual footage of Native American activists rioting in Custer, South Dakota. The activists were protesting the change from a white man's charges from murder to second degree manslaughter, in the death of a Native American in Custer. They scuffled with the South Dakota Highway Patrol, set fire to the courthouse, and incurred property damage. See more
As Levoi walks into Grandpa Sam Reaches' trailer, the TV he is watching has very poor reception (static, etc.) In the next shot, the picture is clear and perfect. See more
