A PLAY IN 4 ACTS
When 16 year old C.J. becomes orphaned by the death of his grandmother, the unforgiving social system of Baltimore steps in; but, instead of finding 'love', he uncovers a dark family secret about his long-lost mother.
Against all odds, C.J. becomes a judge - with his first case "The People vs. Joy Palmer" - forcing him to determine his mother's fate. As dramatic events unfold, his grandmother's wisdom privately resonates with every person seated in the courtroom ... "It's not where you live, but what you're willing to forgive."
