The true story of immigration attorney Judy Wood, and how she single-handedly changed the U.S. law of asylum to save women’s lives. In a landmark case — her first as an immigration lawyer — Judy represents Asefa, an Afghan woman who fled her home country after being persecuted by the Taliban for opening a school for girls. While juggling her life as a single mother and struggling against her own demons, Judy fights tenacious battles both in and out of court alongside Asefa, weathering together a devastating series of losses and setbacks.
