Our Score
Oscar-winning cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond adds a touch of class to this rarely seen family adventure. Bettina Busch plays a young American Indian girl who, with her brother and some friends, crosses swords with a fellow member of her tribe (Tony Acierto) who will stop at nothing to turn a treasured burial ground into a tourist mecca. The members of a largely unknown cast give winning performances, director Laszlo Pal expertly brings together the mystical and adventure elements of the tale and the rugged northern locations are gloriously captured by Zsigmond.


A businessman planning to build a conference centre on a Native American sacred island intends to destroy an ancient burial ground in the process. However, two kids discover his plans and try to stop him. Family adventure, starring Bettina Bush and Brandon Douglas.
