One day out herding, Emerlynn Tso, a 12 year old sheep herder on the Navajo Nation, encounters a group of young boys that do something that enormously upsets her, so she takes action. In doing so she start a feud in their tiny community that plays out in an era where indigenous rights and freedoms were not guaranteed and often illegal, and this feud will need to rely on “the old ways” to bring the story to a happy ending.
