About the Film


Some questions are never answered. Some answers are hard to take. Three decades ago, two Crow Indian brothers ran away from home and no one knew why. Their sudden and mysterious deaths sent shockwaves through a tiny upstate New York community.

This is their adoptive brother’s journey to bring Bobby and Tyler home and confront a painful truth that shattered his family.
