Well written and decently actedd
1 April 2018 | by fools-409-55281See all my reviews

For being filmed in small town Manitoba and using many locals for numerous roles; it is surprisingly well done.

Great story and even touches on some taboo topics to do with white vs indigenous history in Canadian Prairies
