Exceptional And Tastefully Moving!!!

This movie challenges ones mind to see racism from another perspective. It forces the issue of racism not on a black/white side of things, but an African American and Indian proportionally view.

Both having the same feelings, both having two sides of understanding life, its balance for the future, and its weight on the past. Both predilection of learning what it means to be a citizen in a country bent on prejudice. Both facing prejudice from within the confines of the college they attend.

An African American woman must learn to surpass the boundaries of those in her presence to accept the love whom she teaches. Her many admirers surround her in protection of her innocence one of whom she is engaged.

A young Indian Chief must confront his own prejudices and those around him to find freedom among the free who persecute him because of his savage nature.

Escape could lead to death. Will she follow him and leave behind all she had gained for the love of a savage and face unknown obstacles?

The element of emotion between these two will absolutely stir you. the feeling of anger and hostility will ignite you. You'll fall in love with these two! Exceptional and very tastefully moving on both sides of the divide!!!!!

Very Highly Recommended!!!!!!!!
