Blood Quantum - OFFICIAL TRAILER.
In 1981, on the Red Crow Indian Reservation in Quebec, Canada, fisherman Gisigu (Stonehorse Lone Goeman) catches a number of salmon, and observes that they continue to move after being gutted. Elsewhere that morning, Gisigu's son, indigenous sheriff Traylor (Michael Greyeyes), responds to a call about a dying dog that belongs to his ex-wife, nurse Joss (Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers). Traylor euthanizes the dog by gunshot. He goes to visit Joss, and learns that their son Joseph (Forrest Goodluck) has been arrested for vandalism in a nearby town and is in jail with his half-brother Lysol (Kiowa Gordon). Traylor then visits Gisigu, who shows him the gutted yet moving salmon. Joss's dead dog reanimates in the trunk of Traylor's police car, and Traylor shoots it. Gisigu and Traylor set the dog and the fish on fire.
Traylor and Joss head into town to free Joseph from jail. Traylor, Joseph, Lysol, and police officer Shamu (Kent McQuaid) encounter an ill, violent man in the jail who bites Joseph on the arm. Joseph goes to a hospital, where his white, pregnant girlfriend Charlie (Olivia Scriven) is waiting. That night, Traylor responds to a call from a indigenous man named Shooker (William Belleau). Traylor enters Shooker's house and is attacked and bitten by Shooker's white girlfriend, whom Traylor beats with the butt of a shotgun. Traylor and Shooker head to a bridge where Joss, Joseph and Charlie have found themselves after having escaped the hospital in an ambulance.
Six months later, the outbreak of flesh-eating "zeds" has become widespread, and the Red Crow Reservation has been turned into a fortified compound. Its residents have learned that indigenous people cannot be infected by the "zed" plague, though white people can. Lysol has become increasingly aggressive towards Joseph and others' tendency to bring outsiders - such as a man and his young daughter, the latter of whom was bitten by an infected person, as well as a girl named Lilith (Natalie Liconti), who hides the fact that she has also been infected - to the compound.
