WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

On a farm in Faith, South Dakota, a family inextricably linked by the land to a fate they do not fully comprehend: Curly leaves to fight in Afghanistan after September 11th; his cousin Priscilla loses her parents and one of her eyes in a car accident; Judd, a local farm boy, can't take his eyes off her; Curly's father, Bud, buries things in the cornfields; the ghost of a young Lakota girl, killed at Wounded Knee Creek, keeps a curse in the dirt. We discover the circumstances that have left both Bud and the farm empty shells of what they once were, the carnage that took place there over a century earlier, and the passionate bond shared by Curly and Priscilla. The result is a story with the epic scope of a Greek tragedy - taboo familial love, a hero running off to war to escape his fate, and the lingering ramifications of a massacre visited upon future generations. Quietly personal language, with a spare kind of lyricism, is grounded in the characters' lives and their relationship to the land, synced with the chaotic dance of their inner struggles. It is a Rock & Roll Ghost Dance.
