A Pueblo policeman is tormented by the discovery of an ancestor's skull in a housing development being built over an ancient pueblo site. Should he stand by and see the skull relocated to a museum's archive basement, or should he shield tribal members who want to protect the ancestor's spirit journey by reburying the bone in the tribal cemetery illegally?
