One hundred years after the massacre at Wounded Knee, the painful legacy of the Indian wars still reverberates through the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where the Oglala Sioux attempt to preserve their ancient dignity. For Rudy Yellow Lodge, the ramifications are clearly visible in the unemployment, domestic violence and drug and alcohol abuse. Rudy has carved out a respectable living, serving his community as an investigator with the local police department. His brother Mogie has not been as lucky, falling into a pattern of alcoholism that plagues so many of his peers. When a young kid winds up dead in his jurisdiction, Rudy is dissatisfied with the official channels of justice and, inhabited by the Trickster spirit, becomes an anonymous vigilante. Rudy's deeds grow bolder as his anger and frustration swell, until his vandalism strikes too close to home. (press kit)
