The Making of St. Jerome
When Jason De Jesus discovers his younger brother Jerome was the victim of a senseless shooting, his world is filled with questions surrounding Jerome’s death. Was his brother a threat or a casualty of racial profiling? Was he an innocent bystander or someone other than his family’s shining star? Internalizing his survivor’s guilt while reflecting on their strained relationship, Jason’s quest for truth and justice is tainted as he discovers there are no simple answers.

"[…] a perceptive script by Marie Beath Badian, which doesn't seek to point fingers but rather tries to deconstruct a complex and highly charged event through the eyes of society, the mass media and the individuals affected. " —Bruce DeMara, Toronto Star
