Film Description:
"Two Worlds Colliding chronicles the painful story of 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. One frigid night in January 2000, a Native man, Darrell Night, finds himself dumped by two police officers in -20 C temperatures in a barren field on the city outskirts and finds shelter at a nearby power station. He survives the ordeal but is stunned to hear that the frozen body of another Aboriginal man is discovered in the same area. Days later, another victim, also Native, is found. When Night comes forward with his story, he sets into motion a chain of events: a major RCMP investigation into several suspicious deaths, the conviction of the two constables who abandoned him and the reopening of an old case, leading to a judicial inquiry. It remains to be seen whether the gulf between the two worlds can be bridged."
