"A documentary short profiling the public defenders of the South Bronx. These overworked attorneys carry over 100 open cases, each file representing a person in need of help. Their youth and idealism cut against stereotypes of lazy, under-trained PD's. They hope to affect real change while negotiating everyday between their clients' needs and the larger crusade against injustice."--Container.
