A 120-year-old man recounts over his life's adventures, being raised by Native American Indians and fighting with General Custer at the battle of Little Big Horn.
Though far from Hoffman's best performance and vast amount of the film feeling throwaway, this western drama has some good moments, especially in the scenes involving Chief Dan George, easily the best performance on show.
