A first glimpse at one of Hollywood's Future Great Directors.

Skorodin's eye for controversy combined with Bret Reynolds eloquent dance with the camera lens create a compelling picture that bores relentlessly into the Human spirit. Loosely based on actual events surrounding the FBI's treatment of Native Americans during the 1970's Ian Skorodin delicately tells the story from both sides maintaining an objective view(A difficult task). The film's Stirring conclusion is almost an anti-testament to the adage "For God and For Country".
