Press Excerpt:
Superficially a film about springing drug offenders with long prison sentences, this film explores the ramifications of the so-called “Rockefeller drug laws” and one group’s efforts to have them overturned. The Rockefeller drug laws were passed in 1973 in New York state to stem an epidemic of drug sales and distribution. The laws take away judicial discretion by mandating long sentences for possession of two to four ounces of hard drugs.
