Summary
In 1954, when Florence Kaefer was just 19, she accepted a job as a teacher at Norway House Indian Residential School of Manitoba. Unaware of the difficult conditions the students were enduring, Florence and her fellow teachers nurtured a school full of lonely and homesick young children. Many years later, Florence unexpectedly reconnected with one of her students, Edward Gamblin. Edward found success and solace in his career as a musician, writing songs about the many political issues facing Aboriginal people in Canada. She was captivated by his voice, but shocked to hear him singing about the abuse he and the other children had been subjected to at Norway House
