After a tragic riding accident, young cowboy Brady (Brady Jandreau), once a rising star of the rodeo circuit, is warned that his competition days are over. Back home, Brady finds himself wondering what he has to live for when he can no longer do what gives him a sense of purpose: to ride and compete. In an attempt to regain control of his fate, Brady undertakes a search for new identity and tries to redefine his idea of what it means to be a man in the heartland of America.
Brady Jandreau is a member of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe and currently resides on Pine Ridge. He is a saddle bronc rider and a horse trainer. The filming mainly took place on the reservation and in the surrounding Badlands.
DISCUSSION follows the movie until approximately 9 p.m. Whitney Jandreau, who is a BHSU grad and the sister of Brady Jandreau (the star of the film), as well as Tim Jandreau (Brady’s uncle) will be speaking.
