They were childhood friends, close as sisters and bound by a special promise. But now, Sunny Jacobs (Mimi Rogers), is branded a cop killer. She's spent 15 years in a grim penitentiary. She swears she's innocent, but only one person, her friend Micki (Veronica Hamel) believes her. Micki alone has the courage to enter the corridors of power and fight for her friends freedom. It's a murky world where witnesses are bribed, vital evidence is suppressed and innocent people die in the electric chair. So lives are at stake and it's a race against time. And, for Micki, there's an ever present doubt: can she really trust her childhood friend to tell the truth?
