Nicole Beharie (The Express), Will Patton (Entrapment, The Postman), Charles Dutton (TVÂ’s Roc,
Mimic) and Alfre Woodard (TVÂ’s Desperate Housewives, Primal Fear) star in this gripping true-life
story. Falsely accused of distributing narcotics in a school zone, Dee Roberts (Beharie) is offered a deal
she canÂ’t refuse: plead guilty and accept a 10-year suspended sentence. The alternative: risk serving 16-
to-25 in jail. Realizing a conviction would ruin her life, Dee decides to fight back. Suing the DA for
racial discrimination, Dee battles impossible odds in a case that will not only change her life but the
laws of Texas as well.
