Thriller

Marlene

At 14, Steven Truscott was sentenced to hang for the murder of a 12 year old classmate. Marlene is the inspirational story of one woman’s fight for his exoneration and for truth and justice.

Marlene Truscott is Canada’s Erin Brockovich, an ordinary housewife who fought for justice and for her husband Steven Truscott to be exonerated from a crime he did not commit.

The Truscott story became an international story when a 14 year old schoolboy was sentenced to hang for killing and raping a 12 year schoolmate.

Marlene became involved in the fight for justice at a young age, and when Steven was released on parole after 10 years, she met him and eventually fell in love with him. But the couple had to live a life of hiding as their children grew up, and Marlene couldn’t let the story die, determined that the truth would some day come out.

Steven’s case was truly a miscarriage of justice, as the police fingered Steven and ignored any evidence that pointed anywhere else, a story repeated to this day, as many innocents languish in jail. A very female story about an extraordinary woman.
