Treading Water looks at the unexpected, untold story of the evacuees behind the 2011 Manitoba flood, when First Nation people were forced from their homes after artificially diverted floodwater swamped their communities to save the city of Winnipeg and other major urban centers. The displacement has triggered a rise in substance abuse and suicide rates, and Plans for getting people home seem to be at a standstill.
