A well done drama, loosely based on a true story, about the maltreatment of Native Americans in the 70's. Val Kilmer, adequately plays an FBI agent who is assigned to investigate a murder in a Souix Reservation. He is chosen for this job solely because he's one fourth Native American, but he resents that part of his ancestry. However, he eventually comes to discover the meaning of his heritage and soon learns to appreciate it. The acting of Graham Greene was good, but no one else complies with him. The pace of the film is somewhat dull and lackluster, but it is a thought-provoking and a culture-investigating film.
