Raven (Cara Gee), is a radical eco-activist who has been jailed for protesting development on disputed Indigenous land. Long estranged from her adoptive family, she never imagined her brother Colin (Cor) would be the one to bail her out. Compelled to stay at his suburban home, she discovers he’s in real estate—pre-selling houses on the very land she’s been trying to save. Adopted, disowned, and now under house arrest, this is a story of betrayal and reckoning—with love, land, and blood.
Trouble in the Garden had its World Premiere at Cinefest Sudbury in 2018.
