"stunningly beautiful" - TimeOut Chicago 

Winner of the Best Public Service award at the 41st annual

American Indian Film Festival in San Francisco.

"Native American high school students born and raised on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Reservation are the focus of this complex and hopeful portrait by Chicago filmmaker McClellan (KING IN CHICAGO, CREATIVE WRITING). These young heirs to Lakota warriors fight personal battles in the face of poverty, alcoholism, the historical wrongs visited upon their people, and their school’s ominous epidemic of teen suicide. An intense love for the windswept vistas of the Badlands, underlined by the film’s evocative cinematography, supports their expressed newfound passion for preservation of their ancient language and heritage." - Barbara Scharres, Director of Programming, Gene Siskel Film Center
