Adapted from the 1951 non-fiction text by psychoanalyst Georges Devereux, Reality and Dream: Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian, the film follows the true story of Picard, a Plains Indian of the Blackfeet nation, as he returns from WWII and begins experiencing unexplainable symptoms shortly thereafter. He then travels to the famous Winter Hospital in Topeka, Kansas, where he meets Devereux, thus beginning a professional and personal friendship guided by compassion and understanding of Native American culture.
