The film is OK, the dialogue and acting leaves a bit to be desired. A Native American must travel to pick up his father's remains. Throughout the journey are reflections on the fathers past. I was introduced to this film as a good style to represent a native view of time. Watching it seems to just use standard conventions, that would work equally well in a story from Belgium. It misses an intensity, a push to feel like a different sense of time. Right now it is a fairly forgettable b-movie.
