Synopsis by Buzz McClain

In 1854 Utah, 13-year old Nick Wilson (Blake Heron), bored by life on the family farm with his widowed mother (Karen Allen), accepts an invitation to join a local Shoshone tribe. The Indians are anxious to have the boy among them because he fulfills the prescient dreams of one of the elders, Anuba (Patricia Van Ingen); Nick is just happy to have the adventure. He undergoes training to become a Shoshone warrior, and his ability to shoot an arrow comes in handy as a rival tribe -- led by the fearsome Pocatello (Wes Studi) -- and a posse of white men bring danger to his newly adopted family.
