Adapted from Nils Mohl's eponymous novel, Ilker Çatak's feature debut is a wild genre mix between a boxer film, urban western, road movie and music video, set at end of the summer holidays in a drab neighborhood in the outskirts of Hamburg suburbia. Young boxing talent Mauser is preparing for a pivotal competition when his father kills his step-mother and flees. Trying to find his father, Mauser embarks on a journey through the world of music, psychedelia, violence, love and a biblical thunderstorm. And what is with the Native American?
"Once upon a time in Indian country" is a story that radiates both, heat and poetry.
