Windriver City, 1896. The Wyoming Oil Company illegally drills for oil
on Indian territory. The Indians feel the rapture as well for they live
in poverty. Their naïve conviction, the whites would be honest
proves to be a fatal error. The young Chief Shave Head and his half
brother Chris Howard, desperately fight for the tribe’s rights.
