What’s in the Heart looks at the reasons for the health crisis among Native Americans. The film traces the life of a 14-year old Lakota boy who survived the Wounded Knee Massacre, and went on to forge a life based on forgiving “those who had done that to him.” Through this boy’s story, interviews with his grandson, health experts and community leaders, the film will illustrate how one community is using the best of traditional and modern medicine practices to heal from its past.
