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

Last Stand
22 July 2008 | by emmetoconnell-1See all my reviews

I would highly recommend "Last stand" to anyone with an interest in the Indian wars. This is an excellent story brilliantly created on film about the clashing of two cultures.The Indian boy lets you know how his people felt about the white invaders through his facial expression in what is brilliant acting.This is a must see, and for this film to be made in one week and on a shoe string budget is a credit to the whole cast.This film is a must for any Western buff, get it you will not be disappointed.The main character in this short film plays the part to perfection and the closing scene is very well created. The detail concerning Indian costume and war paint is very well researched as is the Cavalary uniforms and weapons a really brilliant film and not to be missed.
