An experimental court in Queens focuses on advocating for, rather than bringing to trial, women brought in on prostitution- and human trafficking-related charges. In this courtroom, after they complete a series of mandatory counseling sessions designed to help them leave "the life" behind, defendants see their charges sealed and dismissed. As the film illuminates the setbacks and triumphs they confront during this process, it also reveals the external pressures that channel these women, some of the community’s most vulnerable, into prostitution.
