Before he was born, Joseph was chosen to carry the sacred ways of his Sioux people. But instead of walking the good Red Road of his people, he put his feet on the White Road of basketball and booze, women and the blues. Awaking at nearly forty, a man who has lost himself, Joseph seeks redemption. The journey delivers him to Wounded Knee, where he must understand the past and heal the present.
