'A maddening true story that touches on many of America’s most enduring hypocrisies' - Village Voice

Melbourne Premiere

Jury Prize Outstanding Documentary - Frameline Film Festival 2016

After being wrongfully convicted of gang-raping two little girls during the Satanic Panic witch-hunt era of the 80s and 90s, four Latina lesbians fight against homophobia and prosecutorial fervor in their struggle for exoneration. This riveting and powerful documentary begins inside a Texas prison, where the women have spent nearly a decade behind bars. Using home video footage from 21 years ago combined with recent verité footage and intimate interviews, director Deborah S. Esquenazi eventually takes on the role of investigator along with attorneys at the Innocence Project, helping these women on their long road to justice.
