Synopsis by Kyle Lavigne

Director Susanna White examines the thorny issue of Native American relocation in this historical drama. Jessica Chastain stars as a widowed portrait artist who travels alone from Brooklyn to North Dakota in the 1890s -- with the aim of painting Sioux Chief Sitting Bull (Michael Greyeyes). She confronts antagonism from US Army officers and empathizes with the tribes' desperate struggle for ownership of their ancestral lands.
