The true story of LA immigration attorney Judy Wood, who single-handedly changed the United States Law of Asylum, saving countless lives in the process.
About The Film

In a landmark case—her first as an immigration lawyer—Judy Wood represents Asefa Ashwari, an Afghan woman who fled her home country after being persecuted by the Taliban for opening a school for girls. While juggling her life as a single mother and struggling against her own demons, Judy fights tenacious battles both in and out of court alongside Asefa, weathering together devastating series of losses and setbacks.

Director Sean Hanish brings an assured and empathetic touch to this timely reminder of a true story that changed the laws of asylum for women entering the United States. Michelle Monaghan shines as the titular character, a woman whose passion and intelligence influenced every part of her life, from being a mother, to being a neighbor, to being a citizen.
