Synopsis - Dave, an undercover cop, is busted when his cloaking power fails in the middle of a gang meeting. Forced to hide out as Detachment Commander in Kirk's Landing, a small Manitoba town, his only goal is to continue as a loner and lay low for a year. He learns it's hard to stay a loner in a small town, though, especially with everyone eager to meet him and enlist his help with their version of the local issues. In addition to a new and challenging staff, he meets Rosie, the local cafe owner, transplanted from Toronto, Junior, a youth with a spray can and attitude, Mayor Palin, eagerly awaiting new funding for the mill, Chief Bourbeau from the nearby Anishinaabe reserve, waiting to see if Dave will really help, and the chief's daughter, JB, intrigued by this new and handsome Corporal.
