Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Jordan Peele and directed by documentary filmmaker Joshua Rofe, LORENA is a four-episode docuseries that reveals the hidden truths in the notorious case of John Wayne and Lorena Bobbitt and challenges the long-held narrative that surrounded this event. Twenty-five years later, this one-hour series re-investigates the moral issues and painful human tragedies buried at the heart of this infamous American scandal. Lost in the tabloid coverage and jokes was the opportunity for a national discussion on domestic and sexual assault in America. John and Lorena's dueling narratives exploded in a ravenous 24-hour news cycle, igniting a renewed battle of the sexes. Lorena became a national joke, her suffering ignored by the male-dominated press. But as John spiraled downward, Lorena found strength in the scars of her ordeal. Amazon Prime released all four episodes of LORENA on Friday, February 15, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT.
