About this show

Set on an American Indian reservation in the Southwest, Palestine, New Mexico follows the fate of Army Captain Siler who has returned from Iraq with a secret she just can't keep. Determined to set the record straight about the "friendly-fire" death of the tribal chief's son, she discovers she is considered a dangerous outsider rather than a messenger of truth. In the battle to tell her story she unleashes far more history than anyone wanted to hear, or tell. Palestine, New Mexico weaves comedy and pathos into a poetic tale of loss and discovery that spans centuries and explores the meaning of right, wrong, fact, fiction, religion, family, tribes and homeland.
