The town's Indian population is threatened when a critically ill Navajo boy is brought to the hospital with a deadly contagious disease. The town elders push for quarantines and other measures prejudicial to inhabitants of the reservation. Hartman, sensitive to native customs, attempts to beat disease and social injustice while putting his own life back together.
