When Josh Nordland moves to a new high school, he only wants to think about three things: girls, blues and football. But when he saves scrawny Billy Cotton from a teammate's beating in the school parking lot, Josh quickly finds himself a social outcast. With no one else to hang out with, Josh begins to bond with Billy, who has a strange dream: becoming an Apache warrior. Despite Josh's Apache heritage, he dismisses Billy's yearnings as impossible.
As the two teens develop a deeper friendship, they embark together on a strange, funny and exhilarating journey of self-discovery. But the consequences of reconnecting with their shared heritage in a modern world might be larger than either Josh or Billy could possibly imagine.
