The Roubidouxs may come from Indigenous heritage, but they are your typical technology-loving, city-dwelling family. When they are “randomly” chosen to compete against a rustic working class family on a reality tv show - tasked with living off the land of a Minnesota prairie for three months - they are in for a real culture shock. They must learn how to work together and reconnect with their Dakota culture in order to win a cash prize in this hilarious comedy perfect for the whole family.
