On a cold day in December 1890, near a creek called Wounded Knee on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, the U.S. Army’s 7th Cavalry opened fire on an encampment of Sioux Indians. The ensuing massacre claimed more than 250 lives, including many Native women and children.

Sweet and artfully animated, it revolves around an unlikely friendship between a mouse and a bear and the inability of their respective bear-fearing, mouse-eating brethren to accept their bond.
