In the early 20th century, oil brought enormous wealth to the Osage people. This “black gold” helps the tribe living here surpass everyone, becoming one of the richest people in the world overnight. The wealth of the Osage people in America immediately attracted other white people. These people come here in large numbers, manipulating, extorting and wanting to take away as much money as possible from the Osage, bringing with them their “lifestyles” of playing, gambling, partying… Greed is increasing day by day. Bigger, those in power began to consider turning the wealth here into theirs entirely, even though this would create a “tragedy”. Knowing clearly these plans, the white guy Ernest still fell in love with a girl from the Osage tribe – Mollie.
The new trailer shows Ernest Burkhart and the emotional journey he will go through as he is trapped between two opposing forces in the story. When war hero Ernest returned home, his uncle William Hale, plotting to infiltrate the lands of the Osage community, “suggested” marrying a girl from the tribe who owned the Osage tribe. a stretch of land with enough oil to make them unimaginably rich.

The Osage tribe began to realize that the situation was getting serious, with so many people dying that it was “uncountable” and decided to protest. A terrible explosion took place before Ernest’s eyes. The conflict on the Osage was becoming brutal and out of control. Ernest stands between two opposing sides, but they are both family. No matter what choice he makes, he cannot avoid regret.

“Ernest and Mollie really represents how confusing and complicated these things are, culturally,” Leonardo said in a statement about the film. “A lot of Osage women married white men who actually came to hunt them down to take over their headship and take their oil money.”
