Ruthless Souls follows Jackalope "Jackie" Cambell, a tough as nails Ojibwe artist born and raised in the strange land of Winnipeg, Manitoba. On the first anniversary of her partner's tragic death, she's back at work and spends her free time, drinking and smoking up "on the regular". Trying to cope with the guilt around her partner's death due to complications from gender reassignment surgery, she finds that her relationships are on the brink.
