    Garin was two years old when his mother disappeared from a rundown East Vancouver neighbourhood. Now that the Robert Pickton trial is gaining national attention, Garin wonders if his mother, a First Nations woman, could be one of his unidentified victims. His ailing father isn't forthcoming with answers, and Garin's supicions are at an all time high. In the midst of all this, his roommate Yuko has taken in Kate, a young pregnant hitchhiker who unintentionally wreaks havoc on their friendship. But when Garin's father is hospitalized, nothing matters except finally determining the truth about his mother. In this deftly written play, the characters grapple with the harsh Yukon winter within a world of racism, addiction, and loneliness.
