Storyline

In the aftermath of the Battle of the Little Big Horn, a twelve-year-old Lakota boy (Goes Alone) comes upon a wounded cavalry soldier (James) hiding in the grass. When Goes Alone sees James about to take his own life rather than be captured, the boy takes pity on him and allows him to escape into a ravine. The next morning, Goes Alone goes looking for James and finds him by a creek, wounded and dying. Over the next two days, Goes Alone and James form a bond that grows into a friendship as Goes Alone tries to help the dying soldier. The price they both pay for the friendship they share is high as their two cultures come into contact again in a startling and emotional conclusion. Written by Anonymous

Excellent short film about friendship and forced loyalty
23 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This short film captures the horrors of war and draws to unlikely allies together and with very little dialog. Clever use of the camera and the actors blended with actual events at the Little Big Horn in 1876 are handled extremely well. Splendid little film dealing with a trooper and a young Indian brave and their personal struggle for mutual survival and friendship. I had the pleasure of doing some research for Mr. Torres and he was most appreciative and incorporated some of my suggestions into the film which I found thrilling. To study how a short film can draw in the viewer, with a limited budget,small but skillful cast and not relying on dialog and special effects then see this gem of a film.
