British Columbia has the dubious distinction of accounting for 28% of the missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada. For its population size, this puts it far ahead of the more heavily populated provinces of Ontario and Québec. Vancouver, one of the "most livable cities" in the world, also has a disproportionately high number of murdered Indigenous women and was home to one serial killer convicted, with others possibly still at work.

Métis videographer Rita Jasper provides a gritty, grassroots street-level perspective in this DVD structured in three 30-minute chapters. With sympathy and respect, the women are remembered and honoured from the perspectives of Loved Ones (Chapter 1) and Survivors (Chapter 2). A third chapter, Reflecting on the Investigation calls attention to the systemic racism within policing and a judicial system that made it possible for a serial killer to be so prolific, despite repeated warnings and unheeded leads.
