This biographical legal drama is set in the 1960s and focuses on the trial and subsequent laws that came to be after the kidnapping and sexual assault of 18-year-old Trish Weir (Abigail Breslin) by perpetrator Ernesto Miranda (Sebastian Quinn).

Trish is desperate to see her attacker put in prison, but the ensuing legal process threatens to destroy her life and privacy. The movie is directed by Michelle Danner (The Runner) and is based on the true story of how the “Miranda warning” became set in law because of this case. Ryan Phillipe (Crash) stars as the confident attorney for Miranda after he is found guilty and challenges Judge Wren’s (Donald Sutherland) ruling, saying it should be overturned due to Miranda’s coerced confession without a lawyer present.
