Description: This film is based on a true story. Chiracahua Apache Massai refuses to surrender along with Geronimo, but he is captured and put on a train with other Apache warriors bound for Florida, away from the reservation. En route to Florida Massai escapes and finds himself in St Louis. Forced out into the countryside, he finds himself at the farm of a Cherokee who has adapted himself to the white man's ways. The farmer suggests that Massai turn to farming, and gives him a bag of corn to plant. Massai is reluctant, but events along the way to the reservation, some 1,500 miles away, change his mind. But when he arrives at the reservation, he is betrayed and re-arrested. Escaping again, he becomes a one man terrorist outfit, burning Army supplies and generally causing a nuisance. Massai and his squaw Nalinle are pursued into the hills by Al Sieber. Will Massai be hunted down and sent to Florida, or will Nalinle convince him to give up fighting and become a farmer?
