26-year-old Chantel Moore was shot and killed by a New Brunswick police officer during a wellness check. Police had been called to her apartment over concerns that Chantel was being stalked and could be in danger. So how did she end up dead? Chantel was from Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation in British Columbia and her family believes that her case would have been handled differently if she wasn't an Indigenous woman. They want criminal charges laid and changes to policing. With a coroner's inquest looming, we track their quest for answers and their efforts to honour Chantel's memory.
While visiting India, a young newly-wed from British Columbia was attacked, kidnapped, and her lifeless body discovered in a canal the next day.

From a corrupt investigator to complex legal wrangling, reporter Neetu Garcha takes us on an international journey of forbidden love.
