Based on the Pulitzer Prize-Nominated play “Keely and Du”, by Jane Martin, in Catch and Release, Keely (Laurence Leboeuf), a young pregnant woman, wakes to find herself captive on a remote northern island. Frightened and desperate, she clashes violently with Du (Nancy Palk), the seemingly impenetrable religious fundamentalist who is both her guard and caregiver. Keely quickly discovers that she is nothing more than a pawn in a sinister anti-abortion game being played out far from her wilderness prison. With escape from the island impossible, she must rely on her wits if she hopes to outplay her captors and win back her freedom.
Catch and Release was originally released with the same title of the play, Keely and Du.
