Film Synopsis:

Maple Batalia, a 19 year old health sciences student, aspiring actress and model, was gunned down outside the Simon Fraser University parking lot on September 28, 2011. Her death sparked outrage in the community, and after five years of court appearances and trials, Gary Dhaliwal was found guilty of second degree murder, and sentenced to 21 years in prison. Gary’s accomplice, his “eyes and ears” of the operation, Gursimar Bedi, was sentenced to 18 months in January of 2017. ‘Maple’ tells the story of a girl whose passion for life was unparalleled, and who had an impact on everyone she encountered during her short life. In the film, we hear from prominent members of the community, including Barinder Rasode and Pink Orchid Studio's Shannon Mann and Harp Sohal. It sheds light on prevalent issues in the community, such as gender inequality and domestic violence, particularly in the South Asian community.
