The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation suffers the highest rates of alcoholism, infant mortality, teen suicide, and fetal alcohol syndrome in the United States, despite the fact that alcohol has been outlawed on this South Dakota reservation for over 120 years. Just across the state line, four convenience stores in the small town of Whiteclay, Nebraska, sell over 4 million cans of beer every year. On August 13, 2013, tribal members voted on whether to legalize alcohol. This is the story of four men living on the streets of Whiteclay and their struggles with alcoholism in the weeks leading up to the tribe's historic vote.
