Lou Diamond Phillips portrays Jim Chee, a recent college graduate who has opted to become a Navajo policeman.  After just days on the job Chee is preoccupied by a series of thefts and the discovery of a murder victim.  If that wasn't enough, an airplane containing a cocaine shipment mysteriously crashes on the reservation, with both of its passengers dead inside.


Before Jim can arrive at the scene, however, a truck speeds away carrying the drugs.  When corrupt federal officials arrive to claim the contraband, Chee finds himself handcuffed and caught in a web of corruption.
