Robert Redford narrates this documentary about the violent events that took place in 1975 on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Indian activists ended up in an extended standoff with FBI agents, and the result was several deaths, including two FBI agents whose killing was never clearly attributed to a specific gunman. Nevertheless, the government laid blame for the killing on Leonard Peltier, a Sioux political leader and activist with the American Indian Movement. Peltier has been in prison since 1977. The film details the brutal federal policies towards Indian people and the discrepancies in the government’s case against Peltier.
