Caméra d’Or winner WAR PONY follows the interlocking stories of two Lakota boys growing up on Pine Ridge Reservation. Bound by their shared search for belonging, each of the boys grapple with a world built against them, as they navigate their unique paths to manhood.
At 23, Bill (Jojo Bapteise Whiting) just wants to make something of himself. Whether it’s siphoning gas, delivering goods or breeding Poodles, he is determined to hustle his way to the “American Dream”. Meanwhile, 12-year-old Matho (LaDainian Crazy Thunder) can’t wait to become a man. Desperate for approval from his young father, a series of impulsive decisions turns Matho’s life upside down and he finds himself unequipped to deal with the harsh realities of the adult world.
