This two-hour critically acclaimed drama is based on the true story of Marlene Moore, who gained instant notoriety when she was branded Canada's first female dangerous offender. This is a story about a child raised behind bars. Moore entered her first jail at age 13 and by 28 faced the possibility of a life sentence. At first, Moore is reluctant to fight; she is afraid to stay inside, but more afraid of getting out. As the case proceeds, however, she is buoyed along by two allies: her lawyer and, ironically, a prison guard she once held at knife point in a hostage-taking incident. Tragically, Moore's story abruptly ended when she took her life at age 31. In the end, it seems the biggest danger Moore posed was to one person: herself. Newcomer Brooke Johnson is riveting as the troubled Moore, giving depth to this emotionally complex personality and underlining the controversy raised by this landmark case. Awards: Columbus International Film & Video Festival, Chris Bronze (runner up in category)
