Plot Summary
Robert Redford narrates this documentary about the Pine Ridge Shootout on an Oglala Sioux reservation in South Dakota. On June 26, 1975, two FBI agents are searching for tribesman Leonard Peltier, wanted in connection with an assault. They are killed after coming under heavy fire, presumably from Peltier and his accomplices. However, proponents claim that the FBI botched the investigation by tampering with and suppressing evidence, and that Peltier's imprisonment is a miscarriage of justice.
