Post-film Q&A with director, moderated by KUER RadioWest host Doug Fabrizio

In the furthest reaches of the Navajo Nation, at the most remote high school in the continental U.S., three Indigenous students maneuver through the vagaries of adolescence in hopes of realizing their dreams, all while balancing the responsibilities of family, the realities of attending a remarkably small school with shrinking resources, and the stunning yet relentless isolation of the surrounding landscape. As Granite, Ilii, and Noah grapple with their own challenges, their stories shine and veritably vibrate with the singular energy of youth—the pulsing potential that seems on the cusp of either being triumphantly realized or tragically quashed. In a series of moving, and at times humorous vignettes, this beautifully cinematic film is a poetic chronicle of their daily lives, set in the context of the warmth of the Diné community.
