George is a high-strung professional photographer who is starting to unravel from the stress of his work with a Manhattan advertising agency. Needing some time away from the city, Jake, his wife Kim, and their son Miles head to upstate New York to take in the winter sights, though the drive up is hardly relaxing for any of them. George accidentally hits and severely injures a deer that ran onto the icy road; after George stops to inspect the damage, he's confronted by an angry local named Otis who flies into a rage, telling George that he and his fellow hunters had been tracking the deer for some time. An argument breaks out, which leaves George feeling deeply shaken.

A really bland film despite its Native North American theme.
Its a real shame that this film was really poorly done despite the underlying theme behind it was that of Native First Nation nature. However apart from all the other events that occurred between the adults I think the main character to notice was the parents' son who seemed to have this interesting fascination with Natives......that one particular scene where the boy was in his bedroom looking through that book on the American West/Plains Indians......he took it out of his knapsack and started reading it in such a manner that he was really getting into it.
But..... anyways......I believe the name of this film was taken in the context of the boy's fascination with Natives. It had nothing to do with all the other activity that was going on between his parents and the hunters or anything else along that line. It was the fact that he was trying to use his positive preoccupation with Indians as an outlet to escape the problems he was having while growing up. Of course its very tough being a kid and I think he just needed something to get interested in to try and escape the problems his parents were having.
Well......anyway....... this is why I gave this film a 4 out of 10.
