In her second feature documentary, award-winning director Tasha Hubbard follows Colten Boushie's family in their quest for justice. Colten, a young Cree man, was shot and killed by Gerald Stanley, a farmer, after entering his property. Stanley was tried and acquitted by an all-white jury. Hubbard tries to make sense of the verdict while reflecting on raising a young Indigenous son on the prairies where it all happened.

Her first solo writing/directing project, Two Worlds Colliding (NFB), about Saskatoon's infamous "starlight tours," premiered at imagineNATIVE in 2004 and won the Canada Award at the Gemini Awards in 2005.
