In 2004, 16-year-old Cyntoia Denise Brown was arrested in Nashville, Tennessee, for murdering a 43-year-old man who caught her for sex. She was tried as an adult and sentenced to life in prison – Cyntoia's fate seemed sealed.
The film shows the complexity of a child who was the product of three generations of violence against women in his biological family. And how, in 2019, after almost 10 years of legal disputes, Governor Bill Haslam granted his request for clemency. He did so after a slow change in the state in search of legislative changes in juvenile conviction laws and having seen evidence of his maturity, education and good behavior as a prisoner.
