The fate of 3 generations of native Americans are displayed in a fascinating way
This film focuses on an issue that is rarely addressed in the film making industry; the struggle of todays Native Americans.

The film lets us into the life of a young Sioux Indian boy, who lives in the big city with his mother. He hardly knows his father who passed away when he was very young. He is now a troublesome teenager who has a problem shaping his identity and denies his Native American heritage. In an effort to help the son, the mother takes him to meet his grandfather on the reservation. At first he finds the grandfather and his way of life outdated and refuses to befriend him. The grandfather who has a great amount of patience and wisdom finds a way to bond with the grandson. He buys him a horse that is limp, and tells the boy that the horse can be healed. If he turns to the ways of his forefathers and makes a pilgrimage to the sacred grounds the horse will be healed. The boy, who at first is suspicious, soon comes to feel attached to the horse and the lifestyle of his forefathers. Thru the process he gets to learn about his own family. The fate of his deceased father and the lifestyle and wisdom of his grandfather. Its a lovely film that I can highly recommend. The film is shot at a beautiful, scenic nature of the American Midwest. And the actors do their utmost to bring life into this wonderful story.
