Storyline

Schoolboy Josh Townsend has to move again with his father, astrophysics researcher Dr. Nick Townsend, to a New Mexico small town. To escape the copy-boy job dad arranged, Josh volunteers for the tribal buffalo reserve, working with Navajo clan elder John Blackhorse's cynical grandson Thomas and his buddy Moon. Local scamp Kyle's cool cyclist knaves gang seems irresistible, but their hazing-like demands bring Josh to betray his buffalo friends's reluctant confidence. Written by KGF Vissers

Nice Attempt
24 November 2019 | by versavultureSee all my reviews

It was a good attempt on Disney to showcase native Americans but it not only mixed up a lot of Northern tribe traditions but it also doesn't capture New Mexico at all. It was filmed in Utah and a lot of scenery wasn't right even the reserve is more based on Utah than New Mexico. Also, where are the Spanish and native New Mexicans? In the film it was mostly white people and only a few navajos. I really enjoyed the movie, but being a New Mexican I wished it represented my state better.
