Storyline
Walter is the chief of police in a small Ontario town that has its first murder victim, an attractive young woman who is found naked on the shores of the nearby lake. The woman isn't local and while the Ontario Provincial Police have taken the lead in the investigation, Walter assists where he can. The town is mostly a close-knit Mennonite community and Walter has recently returned to his church. He is also trying to deal with his own temper that led to a violent incident some months before. As the young woman is identified, it becomes apparent that Walter's former love interest may be lying.

User Review

Crime Drama -Character Driven

Rating: 8/10


I read the review posted that bashes this movie that review could not
be more wrong. I just watched this movie and could not be more
impressed.

This movie is very different from standard police fare, it is concerned
with the characters in the story not just the crime drama.

If you hate what Michael Bay (Transformers director) movies, this is
the movie for you. Characters should matter in a movie not special
effects.

Canada, you should be very proud of this movie.

Hollywood take note. Your movies may make more money but they're not
better.
