Screenplay (coming soon)

Dorothy Riverbend knows a secret. The Hopi and Navajo tribes in New Mexico were placed on reservations by the Federal Government 200 years ago after a treaty was signed…or was it? When Anita, Dorothy’s mentor, is suddenly dismissed from her post as the state university’s chief librarian, Dorothy digs up information that could disrupt the US Government’s policies concerning their lands. While the US Army and Federal Agents frantically hunt down Dorothy, something old and mysterious reemerges from the dark, jutting peaks of Arizona’s Superstition Mountain.
