The film is based on the acclaimed novel by the late Montana author James Welch - who was a family friend of the film's directors, brothers Alex and Andrew Smith. Both the novel and the movie give a harsh but authentic portrait of growing up on Montana's Blackfeet reservation and the hi-line, where it was filmed.
