When Charlotte Sutter, a teenage girl in a pioneer family, is kidnapped by an unknown Indian tribe her brother Sam sets out to rescue her. Taking along Russian, a drunk prospector, he tracks her to "the land of the crooked sky," where she has been wed to a warrior but is accused, as a scapegoat, of murdering the old banished chief. Sam must undergo a grueling and deadly rite of passage--the test of the crooked sky--in order to symbolically prove Charlotte innocent and save her life.
