Facing a rapidly encroaching flood, an aboriginal elder (played by Corner Gas‘s Lorne Cardinal) has to decide whether to abandon his remote Alberta home in Kelton Stepanowich’s solemn, beautifully shot Gods Acre.

The ending is inevitable, but hopeful, and celebrates the power of staunch determination in the the face of impossible odds.
