An action-packed drama with heart, dark humour, and song, And Bella Sang with Us is inspired by Canada’s first women police officers, Constables Minnie Miller and Lurancy Harris, and a remarkable story from Ladies of the Night, a career memoire by Calgary police officer, Margaret Gildes. Hired in Vancouver in 1912 to deal with ‘the female morality question’, Miller and Harris battle prejudice and condescension; a child-prostitute and her hulking, mentally unhinged female champion; one another, and their own limitations and demons.
