A young, single mother of four (Beharie) is wrongly accused of selling drugs near a school and is offered a plea deal that would force her to admit to a crime she didn't commit. She challenges the laws of Texas when, instead of ruining her life with a conviction, she decides to sue the DA for racial discrimination in a case that changes her life as well as the laws of her state. Based on a true story.
