Indian Horse plot
"You have the gift. You have the vision."
Saul Indian Horse is an Ojibwe (a nation of Native Americans), from the banks of the Winnipeg River. As a child, he was separated from his family by Canada's infamous residential school system, where he and other Indigenous students are regularly physically, sexually and emotionally abused. Teachers are doing their best to destroy the children's identities, in the name of the Christian god and the Canadian state. Then Saul discovers ice hockey. Only through his passion for the game and his rapidly improving skills can he see a way beyond the horrors that limit him.
