In 1967, ten Indigenous boys ran the Pan Am Torch on an 800-km, once-in-a-lifetime journey from Minneapolis to the opening ceremonies in Winnipeg. Fifty years later, the runners reunite at a Winnipeg restaurant to share their memories and to discuss a heartbreaking injustice they all endured decades earlier.
