Synopsis

Hunter is a young Cherokee who must grapple with his manhood in the forest. A hemophiliac in a culture obsessed with blood-identity, he feels the need to prove himself. Attempting to do so within his father's culture and standards, he mistakenly kills a female deer or doe, rather than a buck. He is marked by this mistake, and takes to the forest, where he learns about himself from his grandfather.
