Drama

Dee Roberts is a 24-year-old, African-American single mom struggling to make ends meet in a small Texas town. When cops arrest her in a drug sweep, she insists on her innocence. Even though Dee has no prior drug record and no drugs were found on her in the raid or any subsequent searches, she is offered a hellish choice: plead guilty and go home as a convicted felon or remain in prison and fight the charges thus, jeopardizing the custody of her children and risking a long prison sentence. She chooses to fight the district attorney and the unyielding criminal justice system he represents. Joined in an unlikely alliance with an ACLU attorney and former local narcotics officer, Dee risks everything in a battle that forever changes her life and the Texas justice system.
