Crimes of Mike Recket is about failed real estate agent Mike Recket (Nicholas Lea) whose beautiful, pampered wife Jasleen (Agam Darshi) has dumped him and barred access to their daughter. In a bid to solve his money woes, he tries to scam widow Leslie Kemper (Gabrielle Rose) so that when she goes missing, Recket becomes the lead detective (Paul Skrudland)’s prime suspect in her disappearance.

Agam Darshi, (below) won a Leo for her supporting performance in the film. Her next project: a co-starring role as tech expert Khali Bhatt in upcoming Toronto crime drama Played.

SHOOT: Lauren Holly as Dr. Betty Rogers in Downtown Vancouver for MOTIVE 1×07

I didn’t know she was in the cast then or that I’d photographed her in an egg blue rain slicker in the October rain on my way to the Vancouver Film Festival.
