Fancy Dance Follows a Woman’s Search for Her Missing Sister

Apple TV+ has unveiled the official synopsis for Fancy Dance, which reads, “Since her sister’s disappearance, Jax has cared for her niece Roki by scraping by on the Seneca-Cayuga reservation in Oklahoma. Every spare minute goes into finding her missing sister while helping Roki prepare for an upcoming powwow.”

“At the risk of Jax losing custody to Roki’s grandfather, Frank, the pair hit the road and scour the backcountry to track Roki’s mother in time for the powwow. What begins as a search gradually turns into a far deeper investigation into the complexities and contradictions of Indigenous women moving through a colonised world. At the same time, at the mercy of a failed justice system,” the synopsis reads further.
