New Mexico tribal police officer Peter Romero tracks Arabian horse killers and suspects of a brutal double murder to the Southern Ute Indian Reservation in Colorado.
While hunting for the killers, Romero is attacked by wolves, a grizzly bear, and is ambushed by cartel-connected cops. The surviving assassins promise revenge. Complicating his investigation is the long-burning mutual hatred between the Ute and Navajo tribes.
Believing in Romero's spiritual powers, FBI Special Agent Jean Reel hi-jacks him to her own investigation of foreign influence, police corruption, and Sinaloa Cartel activity. The recently divorced Romero knows Reel has no legal power over him but is captivated by his secret affection for her. Fondness turns to love, but the relationship fractures when agitated Utes threaten a violent clash with unsuspecting Navajos at an upcoming hospital groundbreaking.
Matters teeter between fantasy and reality when it becomes clear something super natural is hell-bent on igniting a race war at the ceremony. Romero realizes he has been lured to a spiritual battleground of opposing real and surreal forces. As danger tests his limits in this new dimension, Romero finds he can no longer distinguish between allies and enemies, the living, or the dead.
