Synopsis

Alien Thunder httpsmikestakeonthemoviesfileswordpresscom2

Set in 1880s Saskatchewan at the time of the North-West Rebellion, Alien Thunder is based on a true story about a Woods Cree (Gordon Tootoosis in his first film role) who kills a North-West Mounted Police sergeant (Kevin McCarthy) under desperate circumstances. Hunted for two years by the sergeant’s resolute partner (Donald Sutherland), the ending brings tragedy for all those involved.
