Description

Over a 15-year period, the charismatic M├ętis leader Louis Riel is inspired by visions to lead two revolts to protect the lands, rights and religion of his people in present-day 19th-century Manitoba. He falls afoul of powerful players in the Canadian government and is ultimately executed.

Sung in English, French, and Cree with English SURTITLES.
