When the Federal Witness Protection Program sends a felon to the Navajo "Big Reservation" without informing the Tribal Police, the results is a chain of treachery and killings that the FBI lacks the knowledge to solve. After a shootout between two strangers at the Shiprock Wash-O-Mat, Officer Jim Chee is called in to help. The routine search for a missing Navajo girl snares Chee into a puzzle that lures him across the America West to the forbidden underside of LosAngeles--and to a healing ceremonial where the cure may turn out to be death.
Performed by Gil Silverbird. Gil Silverbird, a Native American of Navajo descent, was born into the fifth generation of a show business family. He sings in several languages and has performed extensively in the theatre and on television.
