  • Annie McBride– mid 70’s (15 years old in 1935 scenes)
  • Zak – about 22 years old, scrawny, ‘down and out’ streetwise hustler
  • Flo – about 20 years old in 1935 scenes. Annie’s sister
  • Zakarchuk – about 22 years old in 1935 scenes. Flo’s boyfriend
  • Mitchell – about 22 years old in 1935 scenes. RCMP officer

Annie is a cranky, puritanical spinster who has never questioned the status quo — until the night her solitude is invaded by a charming young hustler named Zak who breaks into her house. When Annie discovers that Zak is the grandson of her estranged sister, she is forced to confront the events surrounding the Regina Riot of 1935 and face the consequences of decisions she made more than sixty years ago.
