Mekko, a Muscogee man, has just been released from prison after serving 19 years for murder and seeks to rebuild his life. When he tries to reconcile with his family, however, they shun him and he is forced onto the streets, falling in with the vagrant population. He quickly becomes embroiled in a fateful conflict with a local thug, and what follows is a bleak, authentic snapshot of present-day Native American life. Set in Tulsa, Oklahoma’s real-life Native American homeless community, this film boasts an all-Native cast and fuses gritty realism with the fantasy of indigenous legends. Introduction by Margo Smith (U.Va.)
