When engineers built a giant moat around the city of Winnipeg half a century ago, they were creating a marvel of flood control engineering. This is the amazing story of how the flood ditch came to be. John, Kyle, and Matthew all live in Winnipeg, enjoying the protection of the flood ditch. On one fortuitous day, the three lads were in possession of free 35mm film stock (10 years old) and a camera. They lacked a story, and Matthew forgot to bring the light meter. Armed only with their wits, they made this film.
