The Fifth Estate Stories from the River's Edge

The Fifth Estate Stories from the River's Edge

Each year hundreds of Aboriginal students in Northern Ontario are forced to leave their families and homes to pursue something the rest of the country takes for granted — a high school education. The Fifth Estate presents an extremely up-close and personal look inside the lives of students and staff at the Dennis Franklin Cromarty First Nations High School in Thunder Bay, Ontario. This documentary tells a story of struggle, of kids trying to get ahead and of a remarkable school working under enormous pressures. Warning: This program contains mature themes and language. Viewer discretion is advised.
