Regardless of subject matter, Jeremy has traveled the world over exploring the human condition. A non-status Ojibway from Kenora, Ontario, Jeremy remains committed to the Native community through the production, writing, and direction of stories of both a dramatic and documentary nature.
For the inhabitants of a small French-Canadian town in Western Manitoba, life will not be the same again. After missing sixteen-year-old girl Jeanne Ali Skovbye mysteriously reappears near death with the apparent signs of stigmata, both the faithful and the philistine are equally stirred. Jeanne’s case draws the attention of local and international spiritual leaders, and when a well-known television evangelist arrives in town from Texas, he is willing to pay her incredulous father top dollar for exclusive access to her and her story. As Jeanne begins to regain her strength and consciousness, she will need to decide for herself what is the right path forward.
Director Jeremy Torries’s (Juliana and the Medicine Fish, 2017, The Psychopath Next Door, 2014) film is a parable of belief - religion can be used to console and inspire hope in a community, but just as easily to beguile and placate. How to know the difference?
Also starring Elyse Levesque, David La Haye, and Tantoo Cardinal.
