An innocent woman is arrested, charged, and imprisoned for drug trafficking inthis film based on the life of Regina Kelly, a 24-year-old mother of four in a smalltown in Texas. Ms. Kelly refuses to plead guilty or plea bargain and, with thehelp of the ACLU and others in her community, she challenges the local criminaljustice system.
