Drama
After an overzealous district attorney's drug bust lands her in jail, single mother Dee Roberts (Nicole Beharie) is faced with an agonizing choice: plead guilty and go home a convicted felon, or fight the charges and risk a lengthy prison sentence. Despite her mother's (Alfre Woodard) advice and risking everything, innocent Dee chooses to fight the Texas criminal justice system, joined by an ACLU attorney (Tim Blake Nelson) and a former narcotics cop (Will Patton).
