Summary, etc.:
Through interviews, archival photos, and re-enactments, illuminates the experiences of four individuals who were sent to residential schools when they were very young. While their stories represent different generations spanning over fifty years, they share a common sense of loneliness, despair, and trauma. Some are still coping with the many years of abuse and the effects it has had on their lives. At the end, they are brought together in a talking circle to share their memories of pain and humour.
