THROUGH BLACK SPRUCE explores the way a young Cree woman’s disappearance triggers events in two worlds: in Moosonee, the remote Northern Ontario community she fled years ago, and Toronto, where she modelled before vanishing. When her twin sister heads south to retrace her sibling’s steps, her uncle is left to deal with the repercussions at home… and comes up against the ghosts of his past. The two worlds collide in the fallout from the missing woman's troubled life.
