Set in a remote town in Alberta, Anne Wheeler's powerful drama — about the bond that grows between a prim, upper-crust Englishwoman and a Métis single mother after the eruption of male violence in both the "Native" and "white" sides of town — is a thoughtful study of the dynamics of class, race and gender in a far-flung community.

Campé dans la campagne albertaine, ce puissant drame d'Anne Wheeler porte sur le rapprochement entre une Britannique de la haute société et une mère monoparentale métis après l'éclosion d'un violent conflit masculin opposant les Autochtones et les Blancs du village. Une étude profonde de la dynamique des classes, des races et des genres dans une communauté isolée.
