Torn apart by betrayal, two brothers search for each other on the Western plains.
While their family's wagon train stops for a rest, Jacob Milam goes hunting with his younger brother, Tom. They are hoping for a rabbit, a deer, or even a buffalo, but they haven't managed to catch anything bigger than a rattlesnake when they see the Indian raiding party galloping over the plains. Jacob races back to camp, desperate to warn his parents, but it is already too late. Betrayed by their Indian guide, the settlers have been slaughtered. Jacob and Tom are the only survivors.
When the Indian guide kidnaps Tom to raise him as a warrior, Jacob is left to wander the plains. Rescued by a shaman, he is initiated into the mystical rites of the Blackfeet people. As they come of age in an unfamiliar land, Jacob and Tom are finally reunited in an unlikely place: The killing fields of the Old West.
