Buddy (A Martinez), is a quick-tempered activist battling greedy developers who are making a suspicious land-grab for mining interests. Philbert (Gary Farmer) is a serene hulk of a man guided by sacred visions. He desperately wants to find his tokens from the spirits, and starts his journey to become a warrior by trading some marijuana, booze, and a few bucks for his 'war pony' - a beat up '64 Buick he names 'Protector.' The two Cheyenne men are thrown together for a road trip from their Montana home to New Mexico to fight the wrongful imprisonment of Buddy's activist sister. Canadian actor, Gary Farmer, is excellent in this enduring film about understanding the past, fighting for the future and discovering surprising truths along the Pow Wow Highway.
