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.

    the government has taken their land, their resources and their lives...without any attempt in understanding or respecting the valuable culture of indigenous people. the government treated (treats) indigenous people without respect yesterday and wonder mainstream society remains rampant with racism. it's time for this to end.

    I desperately wished to hear the words spoken by the principles in this film but because of the overlay of background audio, could barely distinguish the words. This account is so important...heartbreaking, infuriating, depressing, and still pertinent to so many locations in not just Canada but this globe. What First Nations and First People on this continent have endured because of their heritage and cultures is descriptive of the basic flaws in humans as they now exist. Were I a audio-video guru, I would try to remix this myself so I could hear it more clearly.
