He awakens and does not know

where he is.

Where are my guns?

This one wants to steal a horse.

You brought an evil white man

into our camp.

This diseased filth needs to go.

At the last village

they told a story about

a killer out there killing men

and taking women.

You saw him.

He was possessed by evil spirits!

Seven winters...

Seven women.

Father, it is my duty to honor

my commitment to save his life.

Go on, son.

I tried to force him into cold waters

with my bow.

When his gun overcame me

he spared my life.

Your foolishness has brought

a great burden.

We will find out what kind of man

you have brought amongst us.

Bring him to the sweat lodge.

Let us see how the white man

likes our peyote.

What'd you... what'd you do?

You've got to kill yourself

to end this, Jackson.

You need to end your own life, Jackson.

- No.

- You were supposed to look out for me.

You know, that's what older brothers do.


It's time to die.


Why'd you shoot me, Jackson?

Your own brother, Jackson.


I didn't mean... I didn't mean

to kill... I didn't mean to...


This one must go now.

This man is your responsibility.

You have honored your debt to him.

Give him your horse so he leaves

and never comes back.

Thank you.

May you find your way.


No. For... for you.

Hey! Hey! Ah!

Crazy man!

Go now!

Crazy man. Go. Go now!

Crazy man! Go now!



Mr. Carver?

It's Jackson.

You remember me?

Yes, sir... I know who you are.

Who could forget?

Ah, this is my granddaughter.

This is my acquaintance, Jackson.

- Hello.

- Pleased to meet you.

We served in the war together.

Rebecca lives with me now.

How long's it been, huh?

Hmm. Seven years in May.

Yeah. Yeah, that's about right.

I didn't know you had a family.

You look like you had
