A group of French people share a passion for everything Native American: every weekend they dress up as Native Americans to entertain at small village fairs in France. But their big dream is to travel to the United States and meet some real Native Americans. When they finally manage to go for a 2-week drive across the Midwest, they discover the reality of contemporary Native Americans is quite different from their idealized vision: poverty, continued loss of land, and worse, disturbingly active discrimination by the white descendants of the settlers.
