On Sacred Ground


Inspired by real events, ON SACRED GROUND follows Dan, a war vet journalist who suffers from PTSD, during what becomes the spiritual transformation of a lifetime. Dan is hired to go to North Dakota and cover a confrontation around an oil pipeline that is being built at the Standing Rock Native American Reservation. Dan soon finds himself in between two worlds: the world of the pipeline company and the world of the indigenous people whose land the pipeline crosses. As the confrontation builds and battle lines are drawn, Dan is forced to make a series of impossible choices that will alter his life and the future of America itself.
