NokotaHeart is the true story of Leo Kuntz, Vietnam vet turned North Dakota horse rancher and his fight to save the equine legacy of Sitting Bull. Told in Leo's inimitable campfire tone this is a unfussy, straight-from-the-gut tale of personal woe and hard-won passion, a Neo-Western biopic of private tragedy and spiritual triumph, as much about the man himself and the spiritual imprint of the land on his person as it is about the legendary horses of the great Indian chief. Leo's humbling nature and plaintive, maverick soul is a world removed from the new equine laws and State bills passed by U.S. government. In the cold, unyielding onslaught of the 21st Century his virtual 19th Century existence has been blindsided by punishing economic climes and a vanishing American frontier. Intimate and raw, elegiac and ardent, NokotaHeart dares to tell it like it is, burnished heart in hardscrabble soil. Suffused through the prism of an Irish filmmaker thousands of miles from home in North Dakota...
You gotta do what you gotta wanna do.
