“Streaming exclusively on Disney+ in 2023, the origin story of Echo revisits Maya Lopez, whose ruthless behavior in New York City catches up with her in her hometown,” says the synopsis. “She must face her past, reconnect with her Native American roots and embrace the meaning of family and community if she ever hopes to move forward. ”

Echo also stars Chaske Spencer (Wild Indian), Tantoo Cardinal (Killers of the Flower Moon), Devery Jacobs (Reservation Dogs), and Cody Lightning (Hey, Viktor!), with Graham Greene (1883) and Zahn McClarnon (Dark Winds).
