In late 1950s Ontario, eight-year old Saul Indian Horse is torn
from his Ojibway (Anishnaabe) family and committed to one of Canada’s notorious Catholic Residential Schools. In this oppressive environment, Saul is denied the freedom to speak his language or embrace his Indigenous heritage. Despite this, Saul finds salvation in the unlikeliest of places and favourite Canadian pastime — hockey. Director Stephen Campanelli. Executive Producer Clint Eastwood. Adaptation of Richard Wagamese’s award-winning novel
