In the small town of Walpole, New Jersey, a college student has gone missing in Lenape territory, creating tension between the two communities — the townsfolk and Native Americans. While local sheriff Harold Jensen investigates the student’s disappearance, his old rival Phillip Kopus, now an ex-con, returns to town. Meanwhile, Rachel (Harold’s older daughter) and Junior (a Lenape boy) are in the midst of a high school romance frowned upon by Jean, Rachel’s mother who — trying to track them down one night — injures a Lenape boy in a hit and run.
