The most difficult stories to tell are the ones we most need to hear. Colten Boushie, a young Cree man from Saskatchewan, was killed by a bullet on Gerald Stanley’s farm in 2016. After the RCMP investigation and trial, Stanley was found not guilty of second-degree murder. The jury’s verdict drew national attention and a public outcry advocating for reforms to the Canadian legal system.

With strength and authenticity, filmmaker Tasha Hubbard bears witness to a tragic story that traces back through centuries of injustice and colonial violence endured by First Nations peoples. Reflecting on her own family connections to Indigenous and settler histories, Hubbard faithfully follows the Boushie family’s pursuit of justice all the way to the United Nations.

Drawing together the present and past, Hubbard crafts an urgent and powerful film that demands not only our attention, but our action.
