Out Pete Chasing Horse, otherwise known as Grandpa, is the storyteller of the Pine Ridge Reservation. Nearing a century old, it's Grandpa's duty to share die legends of his people, lest the stories lose their power. One boy who could use the wisdom of the stories is his grandson, 17-year-old Shane Chasing Horse. A member of the Dog Soldiers, a Native American street gang, Shane is a world apart from his elders. At the request of his mother Janine, the boys been given a chance to prove himself worthy of his honourable heritage by delivering Grandpa to the All Nations ceremony in New Mexico. Shane agrees, but he has a good motive - he owes his gang money. Getting out of town is a smart bet, even if it is with an old man and a broken-down pick-up truck (aka Many-M'des-With -No- Muffler). So begins their trek across the open vistas and distant Black Hills of South Dakota. Along this peaceful terrain, under the calm of the upon, it’s the perfect time for Grandpa to tell his stories as they were told to him, perhaps for the last time. It’s Shane’s duty to listen, to remember, and to keep the legends alive for the generations that follow. They are visionary stories of star-crossed lovers, of courage and escape, of patience and humility, of making peace with the past, and of facing unknown horizons with an open heart—much like the horizons Shane and Grandpa are about to face on a journey that will change both their lives forever.
