Synopsis by Cammila Collar

This 46 minute documentary takes a look at issues of domestic violence, murder, and how the legal process seeks to protect the right people. It follows the story of a woman named Susan Greenberg who killed her boyfriend in 1987, when she was 19, after enduring severe physical and emotional abuse. After being found guilty of first degree murder and sentenced to 25 years to life, Greenberg sought to be released based on evidence that the murder was a result of "Battered Woman Syndrome."
