"Inspired by the stories of the Aboriginal torch runners for the 1967 Pan American Games, this film is about the segregation of the Aboriginal athletes and the despair and abuse suffered in the residential school system. It is a story of survival, hope, reconciliation and a dream for a new beginning."
