Synopsis: In 2012, CeCe McDonald was incarcerated on a count of second-degree manslaughter after defending herself from a brutal attacker. A bisexual transgender African American woman, CeCe’s case sparked national outrage, and she soon emerged as a leader in the crusade against the prison-industrial system. Actress and activist Laverne Cox hosts this nuanced documentary that tackles a wide range of complicated topics, including transphobia and racism, the unfair ways the prison-industrial system treats persons of color, and most importantly, the indomitable nature of the human spirit.
