In this feel-good anti rom-com, Beck, a bereaved single mom of the Six Nations, lost her path when her mom died of suicide. A steady diet of donuts sends her into a diabetic coma, her all-time low. But by hitting rock bottom, Beck summons the ghost of her ancestor, Tom Longboat, a famous Mohawk distance runner, who comes to help her turn her life around. Will Beck be inspired to run—for her ancestors, the Earth, and the family she loves?
