Bruno finds out when the police are transporting Anthony Lemaire (Martin Dubreuil) the man suspected of the horrendous crime. Bruno drugs the officers transporting him and brings Lemaire to a secluded cabin in the woods where he’s going to torture Lemaire for seven days before killing him and then turning himself over to the police.

It’s no different at Planet S, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Saskatoon and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine.
