For over a century till 1996, thousands of indigenous children in Canada had to compulsorily attend public schools run by priests and nuns. On the pretext of introducing the Catholic faith to the little ones, the people in power abused them emotionally and physically. Two attendees - Lyna and Glen - recount those horrific days, memories of which continue to haunt them in their later years.
