Racing the Rez offers a rare view into the surprising complexity and diversity of contemporary reservation life, from the point of view of five Navajo and Hopi teenage boys on the cusp of adulthood. The documentary follows Ryan, Dennis, Billy, Johnny, and Joyai from the classrooms to their remote, un-electrified homes, from grueling runs across canyons and mesas to their ultimate day of reckoning the state track meet and beyond.
