A young man in high school moves with his mother to a town in the U.S. Southwest where his father is serving time in a penitentiary. There, he is discriminated against by his peers because he is the son of a convict; this discrimination includes the football coach keeping him on the bench. He receives special training from the ghost of Jim Thorpe, a Native American football star. Written by
Young people today find themselves in situations much like the young man in the movie. There are many ways to be discriminated against by various groups to keep one from realizing their dreams. Guardian Angels (or ghosts) appear, or make themselves known at appropriate times during times of need or when prayed for. Windrunner is an excellent example of this type of guidance from a spiritual source. I would very much like to see this movie again and share it with others.
