Dances with Wolves is a historical drama that follows the life of the main character, John Dunbar, after the Civil War. After a near-suicidal run at the Confederate front lines, Dunbar is awarded for bravery and offered a post anywhere he’d like. He chooses to go far to the west, so he can see the last of the wild western frontier before it disappears.

Dunbar arrives at his post and finds it dilapidated. He begins to repair the building and work on making it habitable. As he works, he also comes to know his new neighbors, a group of Sioux Native Americans. At first, Dunbar and the Sioux are wary of each other. However, as they each begin to learn more about the other’s culture, they become friends. In addition, he also meets a young American woman, Kicking Bird, who was raised by the Sioux. As she teaches him the ways of the Sioux, the two become closer. Dunbar soon finds himself becoming more involved with the Sioux, until he nearly feels like he is one of them. Soon, however, the worlds of the Sioux and the Americans clash, and Dunbar must choose which side he’s on.
