LOGLINE

A young, Lakota woman who must battle the trauma from her beloved sister’s suicide and the burden of her father’s ambitions to pursue competitive running on her own terms.

SYNOPSIS

A young Lakota woman dreams of running competitively outside the Reservation, but with broken shoes and no real track to practice on, her chances seem slim. Even with the best shoes, she’s haunted by the guilt that she couldn’t run fast enough to save her sister from suicide. Those traumatic memories stop her from running fast enough on any track. When her coach father surprises her with a chance to compete off the Rez, her fears become unbearable. Only by revisiting her trauma and standing up to her father can she find the strength to run on her own terms.
