The lyrical feature debut from director Chloé Zhao captures life in the starkly beautiful plains of the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, where an Oglala Lakota teenager (John Reddy) and his younger sister (Jashaun St. John) struggle to find their way while maintaining their deep connection to each other and the complicated place they’re from.

“A stunning, gentle, and heartbreaking glimpse into contemporary life for the Oglala Lakota Nation on [the] Pine Ridge Reservation” (Alice Liu, TIFF Next Wave Committee).
