Up Heartbreak Hill

Up Heartbreak Hill


Up Heartbreak Hill chronicles the lives of three Native American teenagers in Navajo, NM – Thomas, an elite runner, Tamara, an academic superstar, and Gabby, an aspiring photographer – as they navigate their senior year at a reservation high school. As graduation nears, they must decide whether or not to stay in their community – a place inextricably woven into the fiber of their beings – or leave in pursuit of opportunities elsewhere. “Up Heartbreak Hill” examines the ways in which we define ourselves, and the broader issues surrounding what it means to be Native American in the contemporary world.
