On a desolate yet beautiful Navajo reservation in New Mexico, three young people: a college-bound devout Christian, a rebellious and angry father-to-be, and a gorgeous transsexual, who dreams of becoming a model, search for love and acceptance. As the three find their lives becoming more complicated and their troubles growing, their paths begin to intersect. With little in common other than a shared heritage, they soon learn that the key to overcoming their respective obstacles may come from the most unlikely of sources — each other. Inspired by a 20/20 story that called Gallup, New Mexico, “Drunktown, USA,” this is a moving and ultimately uplifting story about coming of age in the most challenging of circumstances while still finding hope, healing, and the chance for a better life.
