 HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA--(CCN Newswire, March 1, 2001)--Inspired by real Canadian
homicide cases, the made for television movie Chasing Cain is slated for broadcast on
Sunday, April 8 at 8pm on CBC Television. Produced by Salter Street Films (TSE: SSF)
and the two-hour movie follows two homicide detectives investigating a brutal drive-
by shooting with a multitude of murder suspects on the streets of Toronto.

Directed by Jerry Ciccoritti (The Life Before This) and written by Andrew Rai Berzins
(Straight Up), the film stars Peter Outerbridge (Kissed) as Detective Bob Kazlowski,
a veteran of the homicide squad, and Alberta Watson (The Sweet Hereafter) as
etective Denise McGoogan, recently promoted from the morality and sexual assault
division.

Investigating the murder of a Croatian woman who works at an abortion clinic,
Kazlowski and McGoogan are led to a suspect with ties to the pro-life movement. A
sudden turn of events, a fresh trail of clues and a suicide attempt by the victim's
Serbian husband lead the detectives into the complex world of Balkan politics and
prejudices.

Stylish and edgy, Chasing Cain was filmed in Toronto in August 2000. The film was
produced and co-created by Bernard Zukerman of Bernard Zukerman Productions and was
executive produced by Michael Donovan of Salter Street Films.
