When a courageous young woman and a radical lawyer discover a pattern of illegal sterilisations in California’s women’s prisons, they wage a near-impossible battle against the Department of Corrections.

With a growing team of investigators inside prison working with colleagues on the outside, they uncover a series of statewide crimes - primarily targeting women of colour.

This shocking legal drama captured over 7-years is a damning account of a shameful and ongoing legacy of eugenics and reproductive injustice in the US, featuring a group of extraordinary women determined to ensure it ends here and now.
