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 movie contains several references to the original Wounded Knee incident, which took place on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in 1890. For instance, the character William Dawes shares a surname with Senator Henry Dawes, of Dawes Act notoriety. The Dawes Act's goal was to assimilate American Indians into white society. Additionally, Frank Coutelle refers to Walter Crow Horse as "Crowfoot". Crowfoot was the name of the first of Sitting Bull's sons to be shot and killed at the original Wounded Knee massacre. See more
