The Indigenous Denetclaw family resides on the isolated Prairie Wolf Indian Reservation. Every morning, the matriarch of the family, Mary Denetclaw, drives her alcoholic son Wesley to the nearest liquor store where he spends his days drinking beer into oblivion. Mary’s eldest son Raymond is now clean and works on a cattle ranch. Their routine suddenly changes when they learn that their youngest brother Floyd, a commander of a unit in Afghanistan, was killed while on active duty. The Denetclaw family sets out on a long struggle to repatriate Floyd’s body as they endure the unjust treatment from the US government.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion with Stephanie Pangowish and Jamie Whitecrow. Moderated by Jaene Castrillon.
