Documentary about Native Americans selling fireworks on reservations. The uneasy relationship between white folks and Indians, the strangeness of celebrating the holiday of Independence Day with people whose ancestors tried to kill all your ancestors, the legal differences between tribal land and the State of Washington, and the make-or-break business situation for most of these small dealers. Exciting shots of the big finale when most of the unsold merchandise is used on a basketball court on the night of July 4th.
