    • Synopsis
    • On the coast of the Pacific Northwest, William Brook lives a reclusive life on a halibut fishing boat. When informed of his troubled sister Sarah’s disappearance, he’s overcome with guilt. Feeling awful for neglecting her over the years, Will heads into town, but it’s a very dangerous place for him. When Will’s parents were found murdered ten years ago, his false testimony sent a local Chief to prison. Ever since, the tension between him and the First-Nations community has escalated and every night he’s haunted by the same reoccurring nightmare. While asking questions in town, Will is cornered and attacked, but he’s saved when the compassionate Chief George intervenes. Meanwhile, after a six-month suspension, Detective Ivy Seymour is reinstated only to discover that her next case may be the one that breaks her. The number of missing women in the area is growing at an alarming rate and Seymour is sent to the latest tragedy. Deep in the forest, a body is found. An amputated leg, a head entirely encased in red wax; no one’s seen anything like it. The body turns out to be Sarah’s old roommate, and Seymour’s investigation points to the possibility of a serial killer in the area. After Ivy saves Will from a brutal beating, the two of them work together to find Sarah. Desperate to find his sister before it’s too late, Will must confront his family’s shameful past, make amends with the First Nations people and finally face his demons.
