Givers

A MYSTERIOUS WESTERN

Indian Givers

Good Cowboys.
Good Indians.
Big Treasure.
Bad Trouble!



SYNOPSIS:

Congress was careless when they drew up a Treaty with the lost Anasaazi tribe. Now a mixed band of desperate poor American Outcasts are trapped, boxed-in by that Treaty, prepared to fight for their legal claim on the Indians' sacred Mesa. Washington must send some expert to settle the dispute, but.....

Has this 'expert' come to help or betray both sides? Is he really an archeologist? A news reporter? Worse? What secrets are these Outcasts hiding? Is there ancient treasure buried inside the sacred mountain? Will the Indians remain faithful to their Gods? Or must they break the Treaty to save their souls? How can two rights go so terribly wrong?

The final 15 minutes will absolutely stun audiences, as the sacred mysteries of the Anasaazi legends are finally, fatefully revealed.


WHAT IF THE INDIANS WERE RIGHT?
