The year is 1970.  The place, a close knit community in rural Canada.  Life is changing, even in this community.  In the United States, there are anti-war protests, the war in Vietnam is raging, highly publicized assassinations have occurred, Charles Manson and his "family" have gone on a rampage, and the Front de Liberation Quebecois has committed a series of violent acts in their quest for Quebec independence.  Fourteen-year-old Emma feels safe and protected from the violent world but it about to come to her world.  A young girl has gone missing. She is found raped and murdered in a small shed at the "Hippie House".  And now the search is on for the killer.  And the girls in town no longer feel safe and protected.
