In the shadow of Mt. Rushmore, one of America's favourite tourist attractions, lies one of her poorest counties, The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. For Police officer Rudy Yellow Lodge (Eric Schweig), the painful legacy of Indian existence is brought home every night as he locks up drunk and disorderly Indians, which frequently includes his own alcoholic brother, Mogie (Graham Greene).
Rudy has always looked up to Mogie, A former football star and Rudy's childhood hero, but the brothers have undergone a role reversal, and now it's Rudy who is the strong one, the survivor. And though Mogie would like to be able to care for his 17 year-old son, Herbie, he's regularly drunk and in trouble with the law, much to the embarrassment to his younger brother. Rudy's frustration with the alcoholism on the 'rez' leads him to take the law into his own hands...
