Film Description:
"In 1966, Canada's first inquest into the treatment of First Nations children in residential schools took place. The hearing emerged from the tragic death of Chanie Wenjack, a 12-year-old Anishinabe boy who ran away from an abusive school and froze to death alone in the bush. Decades later Chanie's legacy endures."
