An excellent example of spiritual guidance
9 February 1999 | by mack-15See all my reviews

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.
