An Abbotsford woman has the lead role in a movie that is being released on the Lifetime channel in Canada on Saturday, Feb. 4.

Dylan Ratzlaff, 21, stars in An Amish Sin, playing the role of an Amish teen, Rachel.

According to Lifetime, the movie is inspired by true stories and follows Rachel, “who refuses to obey her parents’ command that she marry the man who abused her as a child.”

“When she attempts to run away, she is caught and sent to a ‘rehab’ for Amish girls who don’t follow the rules,” the description reads.

An Amish Sin was produced for Lifetime by Amish Productions Inc. in association with Johnson Production Group.
