Searching For Eddie Running Wolf

United States

Who is Eddie Running Wolf? Many asked that question along the road as the filmmakers search for the elusive Native American artist. Legend told a tale of an artist so talented that he could carve anything out of a piece of wood. Challenged by a commission from an avid art collector, Eddie is tasked with carving a life-size female nude statue from marble. Will Eddie finish his masterpiece? Or will his personal life and a dose of insanity get in the way of true greatness?
