Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-nominated play, KEELY AND DU is a gripping psychological thriller, directed by Dominique Cardona & Laurie Colbert (MARGARITA, Calgary Film 2012).

Sedated, Keely awakens to find herself captive in a cabin in northern Ontario. Alone with Du, who has been assigned to be her guard and caregiver, she will be forced to bring her pregnancy to term by an extremist anti-choice faction. Their only connection to the outside world is Robert (Aidan Devine, SUICIDE SQUAD), the mastermind of the operation.

Once Keely discovers there is no escape from the island, she begins to adapt to the reality of her situation. While resisting the faith-based indoctrination of her captors, she soon foms a relatable bond with Du, and the two must fight to escape
