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

Only a revered silence is eloquent enough to describe this
18 December 2007 | by See all my reviews

I think words are an inadequate praise for this amazing and gorgeous short film. The silent communication between Jason London and Joseph Saul in this film is absolutely breathtaking. I had to just sit and think for about an hour after watching. I did not want to move or speak. It was beautiful and touching and brings tears to your eyes. The behind the scenes film was actually longer than the movie, and was packed with information on all the hard work and skill that went into making this movie. It was really impressive! I was totally astounded that it was made in only a week and on a low budget. I am in awe of Joseph Saul who played Goes Alone,and Jason London was sublime!(as usual) Gabe Torres is an artist beyond compare!

Why this incredible and moving picture did not receive the Acadamy Award for short film is beyond me!!!!!!
