Thirty years ago the Supreme Court took away jurisdiction from American Indian Tribal Courts that allowed them to prosecute "non-Indians" on their Land. Decades later, a Tribal Police office's level of integrity and belief in justice is clearly tested as he struggles to stop a non-Indian abuser from destroying his sister's family. Without the vital right to equal protection under the law, the entire family is backed into the same visceral corner.
