By the age of 14, Amanda Sue Bradley has already suffered a lifetime of cruelty and neglect. She's alone in the world and desperate for love. All too easily, she falls prey to a seductive hustler who introduces her to a tawdry world of strip joints and drug abuse. One night, high on speed and alcohol, they take off on a murderous spree. Their victim: the one man who has ever shown Amanda love and compassion. Amanda is arrested for the killing and the crime is so brutal that, despite her age, she faces trial as an adult. If she's found guilty of murder, the penalty will be the ultimate one: the gas chamber.
