    • Synopsis
    • In the Peace River region trouble is brewing. As gas companies move heavily into northern BC, family farms suffer lethal gas leaks, stunned that such injustice could happen in Canada.
      From this mayhem emerges Karl Mattson: cowboy, artist, father. Small gas leaks are affecting the health of his herd and family. When a big leak comes, it will be deadly.
      But the media cares little for the plight of farmers like Karl. And while the government eagerly commits $4M to catching a mysterious ‘pipeline bomber’, it fails to regulate safety standards for its own citizens. The message is clear: industry trumps individuals.
      But Karl isn’t ready to roll over and die just yet.
