An inquiry into what came to be known as Saskatoon's infamous "freezing deaths" and the schism between an Aboriginal community and a police force.

Synopsis

This documentary chronicles the story of Darrell Night, a Native man who was dumped by two police officers in a barren field on the outskirts of Saskatoon in January 2000, during -20° C temperatures. He found shelter at a nearby power station and survived the ordeal, but he was stunned to hear that the frozen body of another Aboriginal man was discovered in the same area. Days later, another victim, also Native, was found. 

This film is an inquiry into what came to be known as Saskatoon's infamous "freezing deaths" and the schism between a fearful, mistrustful Aboriginal community and a police force that must come to terms with a shocking secret.
