TRUE STORY
21 September 2004 | by (Gatineau, Québec) – See all my reviews

Maybe the actors are bad and of course the budget is very low, it was done in Québec with no money whats so ever, but it is a true story, it happened to this little girl. When her mother(Marie-Anne Caron)passed away in 1918, her father remarried and the step-mother wanted to get rid of the kids that came with that marriage, especially little Aurore because she looked like her mother. It as nothing to do with the plot summary that you give.

Aurore Gagnon passed away on February 12, 1920 at the age of 10. Her father Télésphore Gagnon married Marie-Anne Houde the step-mother from hell in 1918 and started torturing Aurore from day 1 and the excuse that was given every time something happened to Aurore was that she was clumsy. This happened in Fortierville, Québec, Canada, and the house in which all this happened is still exists.
