Narrated by TV star Nathan Fillion ("Castle" CBS), Matt Smiley's hard-hitting documentary chronicles the notorious, decades-long string of murders and disappearances of young Aboriginal women along Highway 16, a 500-mile, single-lane stretch of roadway in northern British Columbia (Canada).
Aboriginal communities have experienced the brunt of the brutality: dozens of their women have disappeared along the HIGHWAY OF TEARS, victims of not only murderous predators, but also a systemic racism by a federal government that keeps them marginalized on impoverished reservations. Critics, First Nation leaders, and activists contend there has been little interest in further investigating the crimes and in apprehending their killers.
