Documentary about New Brunswick community of Esgenoôpititj - or Burnt Church, as many Canadians have come to know it - and the struggle over Mi’gmaq fishing rights. In the summer of 2000, this usually quiet community on Miramichi Bay made national news when an armada of boats aggressively attacked a group of Mi’gmaq fishermen as they were hauling in their lobster traps. This incident heightened tensions between the local aboriginal and commercial fishermen and led to a highly-charged showdown between the Mi’gmaq and the Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans - whose officers helmed the attacking boats.
