Synopsis

The Denetclaws are a Native American family who live on the Prairie Wolf Indian Reservation. News reaches them that Floyd, the youngest son, has died during military service in Afghanistan. The waiting begins to return his body to the reservation to be buried. Wesley, the youngest surviving son, is an alcoholic. His brother’s death doesn’t really hit him, as his only aim during the day is to get hold of some beer. Wesley is in daily contact with the white population who run the liquor stores right outside the reservation. This already uneasy relationship becomes unpleasant when acts of violence break out and Wesley is directly affected. The eldest son, Raymond, is a recovering alcoholic with a wife and two sons. Although he feels a sense of responsibility for his extended family, he seems to feel too emasculated to do anything about the situation they are in, until the troubles that have affected his two brothers force him to stand up and be a man again.
