Memory of the Peace is a documentary portrait of Fort St. John, British Columbia. A young male oil worker, an Indigenous female, and a Dane-zaa drummer intersect in this historic oil-rush town as they navigate the cyclical forces of industry, resource extraction and colonization that have shaped Canada for a century and a half. Built along the Peace River Valley, Fort St. John is the site of the highly contested Site C hydroelectric dam, which promises to submerge 5,500 hectares of the valley under water if completed. As construction looms, each must contend with what the project means for their shared futures.
