Moccasin Flats:  the movie

Gritty Mocassin Flats TV series returns as a movieThe acclaimed and sometimes controversial aboriginal television series Mocassin Flats is coming back to life as a made-for-TV movie.

The dramatic series depicted the harsh and brutal life led by many of Regina's aboriginal youth, including their difficulties with gang activity, drug abuse, prostitution, poverty and violence.

It ran for three seasons on the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network before it was cancelled in 2006.

The movie, Moccasin Flats: Redemption, will reflect many of the same daily struggles as the series, but producer Laura Milliken told CBC News it will also celebrate the young people's strengths.
