"One Dead Indian" is a historically based drama about Indian's rights in Canada. In 1942, the Canadian government appropriated lands from an Indian Tribe in Ontario for military purposes and gave them $50,000.
Fifty three years later, a group of native protesters cut the fence and invaded the park. When the Ontario Police attempted to regain the park, a riot ensued and an Indian was shot. An interesting film, "One Dead Indian" features a confusing narrative that gives away too much plot in the beginning of the movie.
