The Deliverance

Translated by: Shelley Tepperman

Directed by: Muriel Romanes

The Deliverance is the highly anticipated final part in Jennifer Tremblay’s powerful and evocative trilogy that includes the multi award-winning The List and The Carousel, starring acclaimed actress Maureen Beattie.

Tremblay’s trilogy follows one woman’s journey through memories and recollections from her past that are deeply moving, shocking and poignant in equal measure.

In The Deliverance the woman struggles to fulfill her dying mother’s wish: to see the son who was torn from her at a young age. She goes in search of him and the truth about their past – but will her journey end in redemption?
