Run Woman Run
After a health scare, Beck, a single mom, sees visions of a ghost, runner Tom Longboat, who works to inspire her to get healthy. We follow Beck, as she takes a journey to reclaim her health, family, and language, all centred around her goal to run a marathon dedicated to the love of her family, herself, and her culture. This journey is emotional and powerful. Beck is a character who is easy to root for.
