KRISTIN KREUK RETURNS AS FORMIDABLE ATTORNEY JOANNA CHANG
Joanna (Kristin Kreuk) is working at a new law firm a year after her successful lawsuit against the steel mill in Millwood. Looking to start over, Joanna took up her mother’s surname and settled in a new city hoping for a quieter life. However, when her boss assigns her to a case for a brilliant, young, internet hacktivist, Joanna is dragged into a dark world of secrets that will turn her life upside down. Meanwhile, with the steel mill closed, the residents of Millwood are struggling to make ends meet and Billy (Peter Mooney) is doing all he can to stop the town’s downward spiral. Luna (Star Slade) and Molly (Sarah Thompson) adjust to living together.
Burden of Truth is starring Kristin Kreuk as Joanna Hanley, Peter Mooney as Billy Crawford, Alex Carter as David Hanley, Star Slade as Luna Spence, Benjamin Ayres as Alan Christie, Nicola Correia-Damude as Diane Evans, Meegwun Fairbrother as Officer Owen Beckbie and Sara Thompson as Molly Ross.
In Burden of Truth, Attorney Joanna Hanley (Kristin Kreuk) leaves her picture-perfect legal career as a partner in a corporate law firm to solve the case of a mysterious illness affecting the female high school students of her hometown Millwood in Manitoba – a prairie town with an industrial past and an uncertain future.
Burden of Truth is produced by IFC Films and Entertainment One in association with Eagle Vision Inc. with executive producers Ilana Frank, Adam Pettle, Jocelyn Hamilton, Linda Pope and Kristin Kreuk.
