(100 MIN.)

Run Woman Run is a rite of passage dramedy with an element of magic. Beck, a single mom, lives in Six Nations, Canada where her dream of becoming a Mohawk language teacher has been forgotten about since the death of her mother. Diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, she knows something has to change, but she doesn’t know where to start.

 

In her quest to change her conscience appears to her as the ghost of Tom Longboat – real life sports legend of the early 1900’s. Tom becomes Beck’s trainer and inner voice.

He teaches Beck to become an honor runner, where she dedicates each of her runs to an aspect of creation or a special person in her life. It is through these Honor Runs that Beck turns her life around, becoming who she was before grief took over.
