Caisse's Quest is about the late Rene Caisse, a Canadian nurse who discovered a cure for Cancer. Rather than be supported, she was persecuted by the Canadian government who wished to surpress her discovery. This screen play is based on a true story of Rene Caisse--with some dramatic embellishments. It would make an excellent Lifetime Movie since it has many strong female characters. I am seeking a Producer willing to highlight her story which is very powerfully drawn. The screenplay has suspense, dramatic irony, twists and turns, and strong characterizations. The screenplay contains drama as well as comic and bittersweet moments.

This screenplay takes one on a journey from the beginning of Rene's experiments and scientific discoveries where she begins as a naive and trusting nurse, to her dynamic transition into a brilliant scientist who must fight for her discovery.
