TV show description:
A Western psychological-thriller series, the Dark Winds TV show was created by Graham Roland and is based on the Leaphorn & Chee book series by Tony Hillerman.
The story is set in 1971 in a remote outpost of the Navajo Nation near Monument Valley. Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn (McClarnon) of the Tribal Police is besieged by a series of seemingly unrelated crimes. The closer he digs to the truth, the more he exposes the wounds of his past.
Leaphorn is joined on this journey by his new deputy, Jim Chee (Gordon). Chee also has old scores to settle from his youth on the reservation.
Together, the two men battle the forces of evil, each other, and their own personal demons on the path to salvation.
Other chracters include burned out FBI Special Agent Whitover (Emmerich), Joe’s wife Emma Leaphorn (Allison), Navajo police sergeant Bernadette Manuelito (Matten), and Devoted Dan (Wilson), a full-of-faith car salesman.
