Windcatcher

Synopsis

Percy Boy, a fast and resourceful Aboriginal boy, bands together with Keithy Cobb and Daisy Hawkins to take the local school sports day title away from the hands of grade five bullies "Wolf Pack".

But as Percy Boy trains with the help of his friends, he discovers his supernatural ability to see Lost Souls – a gift passed down from his grandfather.

In the face of adversity, Percy Boy must lean on his friends, family, and community to overcome his fears, prove his resilience, and become a force to be reckoned with.
