Interesting
17 June 1999 | by (Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Canada) – See all my reviews

Interesting Canadian b-movie about the true story of a woman and her husband, in the 1930's in Nova Scotia, in charge of a cheap country house where she helps young unmarried teenage girls to have their babies. Although she says she's working in the name of god, the woman is in fact a cruel butcher making money selling the babies to rich American families. This is well done with a low budget. Acting is just good, but the subject is interesting.
