At 17, Wendy Maldonado looked forward to a storybook life of wedded bliss with her husband Aaron. Instead, reality soon set in: Wendy had married an abuser. Four children and 19 years later, Wendy and her oldest son Randy collaborated to murder Aaron--a crime that was the family's salvation even as it sent both to jail. This documentary follows Wendy in her final days of freedom before she begins a ten-year prison sentence for the crime. Alternately shocking and heartbreaking, the harrowing film tells the tragic story of one woman's fateful decision to protect her family from abuse at all costs, even her own freedom.
