Set in Alberta, Bordertown Café was filmed outside of Warren, Manitoba.

Hogan plays Marlene, the divorced owner of a small café in a rural Alberta town near the Canada-United States border, whose life is turned upside down when her son Jimmy (Gordon Michael Woolvett) is offered the opportunity to go live with his father and his father's new wife in the States.
