Storyline

Kansas, 1868. A wagon train is attacked by a band of Lakota Sioux led by the young and athletic warrior Tokalah. The attractive, red haired Anna Brewster-Morgan and her friend Sarah White are on this wagon train too. When Tokalah noticed a terrified Anna with a Bible, he thinks this is an omen. Despite killing the other passengers of the wagon train, only Anna and Sarah may continue their voyage. The next day Anna and Sarah are kidnapped by Tokalah. At first terrified of her captors, the unhappily married Anna eventually falls in love with the noble, honorable Tokalah. After a year's captivity, Sarah is returned to her own people. Anna now must choose between her new life with Tokalah and her previous existence as the wife of farmer Daniel Morgan. Written by Robert

Goofs

In the scenes where Anna and Sarah first escaped they were riding bareback then there were times you could see saddles on the horses, especially at the river where they're recaptured - you can see them bareback, but when Anna's horse goes down you can see a saddle on her horse. See more »

A vision comes true

Although Anna is first unable to believe in it, the gentle way Tokalah treats her with the appropriate respect, leads to to realize her true fate. Despite the threat of war, the plot is peaceful, cautious and with luring persuasion, which leads Anna back to Tokalah despite the obstacles she, her family and the Lakota have to overcome and the trouble and destruction they have to endure.

At last a film based on sensitivity rather than on bloody fighting scenes which adds to the depth of the story even more.
