Life on an Indian reservation in Ontario: Silas and Frank are trying to get into college but they find themselves having to deal with girls, family ... and murder.
Based on a book by W.P. Kinsella, Dance Me Outside centers on a Northern Ontario reserve. Silas Crow (Ryan Black) and Frank Fencepost (Adam Beach) are drifting through life. With a dream of escaping to Toronto and enrolling in a mechanics course Silas begins writing his entrance paper about life on the reserve. A visit from his sister (who left the reserve and married a white man), Silas' ex-girlfriend's sudden activism, and the murder of a native by a white man all drive Silas and Frank to an awakening to issues beyond the dance on Saturday. Starring Adam Beach (Flags of Our Fathers, Law & Order), Ryan Black (Moccasin Flats), Jennifer Podemski (Degrassi: the Next Generation, Seventh Generation)
