About This Project

After moving to a new school, Josh Nordland focuses on football, girls and blues. Josh finds himself fitting in well with his new teammates – until one day he protects a scrawny kid named Billy Cotton in the parking lot from their wrath. Now, although even Josh can’t explain why he stepped in, he becomes an outcast.


But Billy, who dreams of one day becoming an Apache warrior, encourages Josh to rediscover his cultural heritage as the two teens embark together on a strange, funny and exhilarating journey of self-discovery.


A touching examination of friendship, heritage and growing up from Charles Alverson.
