Throughout the early stages of Saul's life, his family was torn apart by white Canadians who took his brother Benjamin and Sister Rachel, and put them into residential schools.
I really miss my brother and my sister. I want them to come home...
You are coming with us. You must learn to be like us.
Saul is later on kidnapped and sent to a Residential school apart from his brother and sister.
Noooooo! Please do not take me!
Saul uses the sport hockey to get away from the abuse. He becomes very talented at the sport. He is then adopted by a Canadian Indigneous man who see's potential in Saul.
Stop! That hurts! Please!!!
Saul endures lots of abuse in the school. He is sexual, physically and mentally abused.
Great Potential! I am going to adopt him!
Saul had a new home, it was like hockey made Saul a clear path and provided him with a better life!
I am so happy! I am off to hocke practice Papa! Love you!
Saul is ready to give up on everything. From being a happy, successful teenager, the trauma and racism from the past is starting to take a toll on him. He becomes an alcoholic and turns into a violent man.
I wish I could take it all back. I hate my life!
As Saul grows older he is recalling the paths that he took that made him unhappy and he is trying to become happy again and live a better life.
I need to forget how much pain my childhood causes me and move on in my life.
