It's just another typical day at a rural elementary school on a reservation in Oklahoma. Little Chief, the school’s mascot, appears faded on the walls as a proud symbol of a rich and complicated history. It’s a world that is stacked against them, but Sharon shows up each day to guide her 5th grade students through it. Bear is having a particularly hard time, enduring challenges both at home and in the classroom. He is desperate to escape it all, and Sharon is left chasing a little boy who is running to nowhere.
