As a reflex to violence and tragedy, a middle-aged single mother tries to shield her children, but when a brutal gun spree in the city brings violence to her doorstep, she’s jolted out of stagnation. Finding courage, she secretly cleans the lingering traces of blood, left in abandoned crime scenes in her community. It’s an act that transforms her relationship with where she lives, her family, and herself.

Village Keeper marks the feature film debut of producer-director-screenwriter Karen Chapman. Production on this 2024 release was scheduled to run from June 26-July 14, 2023, in Toronto, Canada.
