The 'Bayline' was the nickname given to the Hudson Bay Railway running between The Pas and Churchill in Manitoba. George Neepin accompanies his wife Maria and their daughters to the spot where he grew up along the Bayline. As the family shares stories and goes hunting, their tender connection to this rarely visited spot reveals the beautiful connections between this family and this special second home.
Jenna (JJ) Neepin (Cree) is a filmmaker living in Winnipeg. Bayline is her second short documentary and was created for MTS Stories from Home in Manitoba.
