Last winter, five young people killed themselves in the northern Indigenous community of Cross Lake, Manitoba. In the weeks that followed 140 more attempted suicide. Cross Lake declared a state of emergency. The Fifth Estate went to Cross Lake to find out why and spent nine months there, talking to people, filming — and giving young people their own cameras to tell their stories.
We arrived expecting darkness but we also found plenty of hope and struggle. Young people let us into their lives and opened up about their fears, their concerns about their parents, their desire to protect their siblings.
They shared their dreams about finding a new life — whether through sports, music or romance … and even by becoming young parents.
And we met the adults struggling to help them — a dedicated principal trying to keep her students safe and a determined Chief fighting for a better future for her people.
Come meet the people of Cross Lake and take a journey you won’t soon forget.

The indigenous people in Canada are survivors. Survivors of a long history of oppression. Their culture and language were once questioned by the new ‘owners’ of their world. This documentary is looking for the sources of suffering within the indigenous population of Winnipeg in Canada. Their stories tell about a long battle for the right to simply exist and about a machinery that was designed to erase their people from planet earth. Many generations of indigenous people have suffered this cultural genocide enforced by the canadian government. What we see today is the aftermath of this history of colonization and the first steps to pick up the pieces and heal. There is a long journey ahead but a start is made.
