Deer Woman Trailer / Arts Centre Melbourne

Deer Woman is a solo warrior woman work of righteous vengeance, starring Cherish Violet Blood. Lila is a big sister whose little one was stolen. She is the daughter of a hunter who taught her all he knew. She’s ex-army, but can’t seem to leave all that training behind. Circumstances converge and Lila finds the perfect opportunity to avenge her younger sister’s murder while exercising the skills the Canadian government trained into her.
