Yoav Potash’s devastating documentary examines the plight of incarcerated Deborah Peagler, whose life is held hostage by the injustice rampant within the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office. Peagler was imprisoned in 1983 for conspiring to kill her boyfriend, who brutalized her and forced her into prostitution. At the time, evidence of abuse was inadmissible. When the law changes in the early 2000's, two idealistic attorneys take up the remarkable Peagler's case, believing her release is a legal slam dunk. What follows is a wrenching trip through a Kafkaesque maze of bureaucracy and corruption.
