Janet Gregory, (Julia Ormond), aka "Prissy", is a single mom and paralegal in a small Southern Louisiana town. When her boss is suddenly killed by lightning, she helps out by reassigning his case load. But one case in particular, the case of Calvin Willis, brings back an emotional haunting she just can't walk away from it. The more she looks into the case, the more she discovers many discrepancies that don't. She devotes the next 20 years of her life doing everything she can to bring the case back before a judge. Finally on September 19, 2003, "Prissy" and Calvin Willis, (Mahershalalhashbaz Ali), walk down the steps of the Louisiana State Correctional Facility as Calvin becomes a free man.
