Ordinary Magic is a 1993 Canadian film about a boy who is raised in India by his father. The story is based on a novel by Malcolm Bosse with Canada substituting in the film for the book's Midwestern USA location.
When his father dies, Ganesh / Jeffrey (Ryan Reynolds), is sent to live with his Aunt Charlotte (Glenne Headly) in Canada. He leads his aunt and his friends in staging a satyagraha, a non-violent hunger strike/protest, to try to save his aunt's house from being demolished to make room for a ski resort.
