The lives of two Oglala Lakota boys interlock in this coming-of-age drama set against the backdrop of South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Reservation.

Drama 2022 115 mins

Director: Gina Gammell and Riley Keough



Two stories interweave in this coming-of-age drama set on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. In one, charming young father Bill acquires a poodle in his latest money-making scheme, while the other finds Matho, a pre-teen also looking to make some cash, attempting to navigate an abusive domestic environment. This beautiful and blistering portrait of young Native American life was developed out of co-directors Keough and Gammell’s involvement on Andrea Arnold’s American Honey, during which they connected with extras Franklin Sioux Bob and Bill Reddy, whose own lives informed their screenplay for this film.
