Adapted from an acclaimed novel, this funny and deeply moving film is set in the heart of contemporary Native American life in the sparse lands of the Dakotas. Kent Nerburn (Christopher Sweeney), a good-hearted, white American writer receives a mysterious call to meet 95-year-old elder Dan (Dave Bald Eagle), from a distant Indian reservation regarding an oral history book he made with Red Lake Ojibwe reservation students in northern Minnesota. Despite misgivings, Kent travels across America’s northern plains to meet Dan, who lives alone in a clapboard shack back in the hills with his only real companions—his dog, a close friend named Grover (Richard Ray Whitman) and his granddaughter Wenonah (Roseanne Supernault) . As the stories pour from Dan, Kent’s understanding of the world is turned upside down and a history he thought he knew is called into question.
