Rob Brown, a gang leader on a remote Ojibwe reservation in Minnesota, faces prison for a fifth time, and must confront his role in bringing crime and illegal drugs into his beloved community. As Rob struggles with his violent past, his 17-year-old protégé, Kevin, dreams of the future, and must decide whether to reconnect with traditional Ojibwe ways or be pulled towards the illicit lifestyle of his mentor. This haunting and visually arresting documentary explores the truth about life on the reservation today.
