What do the living owe the dead, what are the moral limits of the State, and by what codes do we define what it means to be human? In this modern, haunting adaptation of Sophocles' classic tragedy Antigone, a Native American family is torn apart as they struggle over the fate of ancestral remains and their conflicting loyalties to different notions of tradition, law, and the price of sacrifice.
