Description

The Haweaters brings to life the violent, real-life double-murder of Charles and William Bryan by two members of the Amer family on Manitoulin Island in 1877. Well known in its day, but unknown to us now, this murder pitted a wealthy landowner against his impoverished neighbour. It's a tale of treachery, gossip, drunkenness, arson and the merciless deaths of two not-so-innocent victims.
