Falsely accused, a woman must fight to survive the primitive world of a women's prison, protect her children from the street and fight for the rights of imprisoned mothers and their kids in this compelling true drama. Living in poverty, single mother Annie struggles to make a good life for herself and her children. Then a drug deal goes badly wrong for her boyfriend - and he sets up Annie to take the fall for his crime. Naively refusing to plea-bargain, Annie is found guilty and sentenced to 15 years. Conditions in prison are brutal and humiliating, but Annie finds a common ground with many other inmates: they, too, have kids on the 'outside'. Discovering hidden reserves of strength, Annie begins to fight, not only for justice for herself, but for all those who are struggling to keep love alive on both sides of the steel bars.
