In South Dakota, in an Indian reservation, an old storyteller Indian asks his grandson Shane, who is in trouble owing money to some bad guys, to take his old pony and him to Albuquerque to the great powwow, an Indian meeting. The plot unwinds as the two travel from Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota to the fictitious All Nations powwow in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a trip the grandson takes only under duress. Along the way, the grandfather tells his grandson various Indian stories and legends to help him understand and choose the "good red road," i.e. to embrace an Indian identity.

This made for television film was co-produced by Canada, U.S.A. and Germany. Filming lasted four months and took place mainly in Canada. Representatives of the Lakota, Kiowa, Cheyenne, Pawnee, Blackfeet, Mohawk and Crow tribes came on board the film to evaluate the authenticity of the production during filming and to suggest changes. Some scenes involved shooting a stampeding herd of 1,500 buffalo.

The production was awarded: 2003, American Indian Film Festival: Best Film: 2004, Emmy Outstanding Special Visual Effects for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special: 2004 Humanitarian Award—John Fusco—First Americans in the Arts.
