A moving and unforgettable adaptation of this 1996 award-winning novel by author Kent Nerburn draws the reader deep into the world of an Indian elder known only as Dan (Dave Bald Eagle). It's a world of Indian towns, white roadside cafes, and abandoned roads that swirl with the memories of the Ghost Dance and Sitting Bull. Meet vivid characters like Jumbo, a 400-pound mechanic, and Annie, an 80-year-old Lakota woman living in a log cabin. Threading through the film is the story of two men, a white author sucked into the heart of contemporary Native American life and a 95 year-old Lakota Sioux, struggling to find a common voice. As the story unfolds, Dan speaks eloquently on the difference between land and property, the power of silence, and the selling of sacred ceremonies.
