Winter in the Blood
Directed by: Alex Smith & Andrew J. Smith

This lyrical adaptation of James Welch’s acclaimed novel centers on Virgil First Raise, who wakes up one day in a ditch on the hardscrabble plains of Montana, hungover and badly beaten. Returning home to his ranch on the reservation, he finds his wife has left him—and taken his beloved rifle. Virgil sets out to town to find them, beginning a hi-line odyssey of inebriated, and possibly imagined, intrigues.
“This hand-crafted film is beautifully made—photographed, scored and edited with a grubby lyricism.” – Hollywood Reporter
