The rookie guard gets a chance to prove her mettle when she's tasked with accompanying a hell-raising inmate (Leo) on an emergency furlough to visit her dying mother. But things soon spiral out of control, sending the pair on a hilarious, surprising, and ultimately touching road trip. Oscar® winner⁺ Anna Paquin, Edgar Ramírez, and La La Anthony co-star.
