Pete Chasing Horse (August Schellenberg) is an elder storyteller.
Shane (Eddie Spears), his 16-year-old grandson, who is having
trouble with local Native gang members, lives in a world apart

journey, Grandpa Pete brings the boy back to a Native place with
traditional stories of many Native Nations. Native actors young
