The Jingle Dress" tells the story of Desert Storm war vet John Red Elk as he moves his family off the Ojibwa reservation in rural northern Minnesota, to the inner core of Minneapolis to investigate the mysterious death of his long lost Uncle Norton. Mostly seen through the eyes of his ten year old daughter, we follow this family as they experience the foreign culture of an urban big city and gain a new understanding and appreciation for their own Native American roots.
