A young boy on a Reservation shoots an animal and travels a great distance to cover it up.
“Trickster” is about an eight year-old Pauite boy who shoots an animal. His older sister intuitively knows that he has done something wrong. The two children ride their bikes into the desert and bring the animal to the “Pit”, a bone yard. But how much further will they go to cover up the incident?
