Only $5! Chelsea Hendrickson, a member of the Northern Arapaho Nation from the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming, will introduce this screening. This film is being shown for Native American Heritage Month at the suggestion of Johnny Arnoux, a member of the Blackfoot confederacy from the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Montana.
U.S. Fish & Wildlife agent Cory Lambert discovers the body of a Native American teenager in the rugged wilderness of the Wind River Indian Reservation. Sent to investigate the murder, a rookie FBI is unprepared for the oppressive weather and isolation of the Wyoming winter. When she employs Cory as a tracker, the two venture deep into a world ravaged by violence and the elements.
