Chasing Tailfeathers

Chasing Tailfeathers is a comedy, loosely based on Shakespeare's Macbeth.  See what happens when the world of the pow wow trail and the world of Shakespeare come together.  See how all human beings, regardless of time, place, culture, and language, must deal with the darkness within and the ramifications of our bad decision-making.
