In the Beginning shares early Indigenous stories of Vancouver at the Firehall Arts Centre –

Rosemary Georgeson didn’t know it at the time, but the events of that sunny day in the 1980s when she was almost killed by the ocean that had fed her and her family for many years set her on a path that led to where she is today.
