Jane Doe is My Mother

In British Columbia, in the early months of 1980, a young woman is brutally murdered and buried in a shallow grave. Decades later, two hikers discover her remains on the shore of Cold Lake. In an attempt to identify the girl, authorities recreate her physical appearance in a series of sketches released to the public.

Four hundred kilometers away in the city of Vancouver, one of university professor Nora Devrey’s students hands her a newspaper article that features the Jane Doe police sketch. The picture appears to be a pencil drawing of Nora.

Growing up, Nora had known she was adopted at birth but had never been curious about her biological family. Now, she’s obsessed with learning as much as she can about her origins and won’t stop searching until she discovers Jane Doe’s name and any link between herself and the murdered girl.
