Documentary

Rudy Valdez shows the aftermath of his sister Cindy's 15-year sentence for conspiracy charges related to crimes committed by her deceased ex-boyfriend - something known, in legal terms, as "the girlfriend problem." Valdez's method of coping with this tragedy is to film his sister's family for her, both the everyday details and the milestones - moments Cindy herself can no longer share in. But in the midst of this nightmare, he and his family begin to fight for Cindy's release during the last months of the Obama administration's clemency initiative. Whether their attempts will allow Cindy to break free of her draconian sentence becomes the aching question at the core of this deeply personal portrait of a family in crisis.
