Secrets are lurking behind the proper exteriors of Winnipeg's turn-of-the-century houses.

In June 1899, the Reverend Charles Lauchlan's industrious life as a young Presbyterian minister is knocked off the rails when he learns that his former university roommate has been arrested on murder charges.
