The Diviners

This film adaptation of one of Margaret Laurence's best-loved works follows Morag Gunn from her tough childhood in Manitoba through to middle-age as she searches for meaning and love. Along the way, we meet various characters from Laurence's Manawaka series and catch a glimpse into the many ways that society creates outcasts. Morag has the child of a native man, Jules, her childhood sweetheart. She tries to raise her daughter alone, denying the child her native heritage.
