Summary
Shirley, Carlene and Ruby have collectively spent over eighty-five years in Missouri state prison, having each been convicted of the murders of their abusive husbands. Beaten, raped, sold, abused and almost murdered, these women suffered for years prior to their desperate crimes. A powerful and poignant insight into the world of domestic abuse, the lives it destroys, and an insensitive US justice system. A shocking film you won't easily forget.
