The year is 1975. Bored at work and ignoring the adage that "You should be careful what you wish for," Alex Houston joins the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in hopes of doing some "real policing." The journey that follows tests Alex's commitment, spirit of adventure, and resilience. Posted to a remote location, Alex finds that life is unpredictable. In an instant, routine can turn to chaos, safety to danger, and commonplace to mystery. Meanwhile, friends and enemies can emerge when they are least expected and in the most unlikely of places. As Alex follows a path of challenge and self-discovery, some people find that, as a Mountie, she can be ... inconvenient.
