As a child he is separated from his family by Canada’s notorious residential school system, where he and fellow Indigenous students suffer routine physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. Then, Saul discovers hockey. Through his passion for the game and his rapidly improving skills, he glimpses a path beyond the horrors that confine him. But is hockey enough to save him?

Together they create a character torn apart by betrayals, but determined to never give up.
