Storyline

Schoolboy Josh Townsend has to move again with his father, astrophysics researcher Dr. Nick Townsend, to a Utah small town. To escape the copy-boy job dad arranged, Josh volunteers for the tribal buffalo reserve, working with Navajo clan elder John Blackhorse's cynical grandson Thomas and his buddy Moon. Local scamp Kyle's cool cyclist knaves gang seems irresistible, but their hazing-like demands bring Josh to betray his buffalo friends's reluctant confidence. Written by KGF Vissers

excellent
25 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is by far one of the most dramatic, and powerful Disney Channel Original Movie. And this movie is of course, among the best. This movie showed how life is in the lands of the Navajo Indians, and also shows us the powerful forces of nature. This movie also contains the true forging of what will be a great friendship between the two main characters in this movie, Josh, played by Reiley McClendon, and Thomas, played by Simon Baker. They, at first, had nothing in common. Whatever Josh did, Thomas hated. After a vandalism at a nearby, preserved stream, Josh was blamed for the entire incident because he said that he'd tell nobody of the spot, and he did. Thomas and Josh were forced to camp out together in the wilderness, together, to find hozho, or being in harmony with the way things are, within themselves. Indeed they did.
