Night Mayor

Winnipeg, 1939: Inventor Nihad Ademi harnesses the waves of the very Aurora Borealis itself and uses the power to broadcast images of Canada to its own citizens from coast to coast. The unregulated imagery angers the government, who send a crack team of federal agents to shut Nihad’s project down.
