Synopsis

In 1967, the year Canada celebrated its 100th birthday, 10 Indigenous athletes ran the torch from Minneapolis to Winnipeg for the 5th Pan American Games. The young athletes were selected from various First Nations communities across Manitoba and were given the opportunity to share this once in a lifetime experience. But just before they entered the stadium at the opening ceremonies, the torch was taken from them and given to a non-Indigenous runner. 50 years later, they reunite at a Winnipeg restaurant to share their memories and to discuss the injustice that occurred.
