This educational documentary tells the story of "Shannen's Dream" and captures the process as we join together to carry on her vision. Shannen Koostachin had a dream--that all First Nation children should be able to get an education in clean, "comfy" schools just as non-Native children. Tragically, the 15-year-old Cree youth died in a car crash this past summer. Shannen was one of the student leaders in the Attawapiskat School Campaign-- a fight to get a grade school built for 400 children attending classes in portables on a contaminated brownfield. In her short life, 'Shannen's Dream' has inspired national interest to carry on the fight.
