Two Nations At War, One Unexpected Warrior... Set in 1855, and based on the award-winning book "The White Indian Boy" by Elijah Nicholas Wilson, Wind River tells the true story of a young white settler who is accepted as part of the Shoshone Indian tribe. On the western plains of Utah, a battle rages for control of the American frontier. White settlers pushing west clash with the Showshone Indians, led by Chief Washakie (Russell Means). After the Washakie's wife has a vision that a yellow-haired boy is the only one who can save their family, a Shoeshone warrior, Moragoni (A. Martinez), kidnaps a young white settler, Nicolas Wilson (Blake Heron). When a gang of settlers comes looking for him, Nicholas faces the toughest decision in his life. Trapped between two worlds, Nicholas must decide whether to return to his real family, or stay with the Indian family he has grown to love.
