In 1973, members of the American Indian Movement began an armed rebellion at Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in Wounded Knee, North Dakota. Elsewhere, two activists are arrested and held at an isolated sheriff’s sub-station. One is Marvin (Chadwick Brown), a lawyer whose Native American wife (Tonantzin Carmelo) died in a purported accident. The other is Bud (Michael Spears of “Dances With Wolves”), the dead woman’s brother. Both suspect that Anna was actually murdered.
They’re assigned a conscientious lawyer, Claire (Alena von Stroheim, granddaughter of Erich von Stroheim) who begins to dig. Meanwhile, they’re visited by an associate of the Nixon Administration (Ron Rogge) , a Senator, and a Hollywood star (King Orba) who is also a political activist on behalf of Native Americans. Why are Marvin and Bud being held, and why are they the subject of so much interest?
