Lily Forrester is a tough Ventura County judge who has overcome adversity and heartache to get to a place where she can help those who can’t help themselves. She’s put all of her passion and energy into this cause and has no regrets. That is, until she receives word that her daughter Shana, who is attending law school hundreds of miles away, seems to be having a nervous breakdown.
Feeling guilty at what she sees as a failure in her duty as a mother, Lily rushes to Shana’s side. With a major murder trial underway in her court, Lily faces an agonizing choice: stay with Shana — and possibly see a killer go free due to a mistrial — or return to work and possibly sacrifice her daughter’s sanity. In a desperate balancing act, Lily takes Shana to a supposedly prestigious treatment facility for help.
Unfortunately for the two women, the institution is far less interested in treating patients than it is in bilking insurance companies out of extravagant fees�Ķ and the staff is less than scrupulous about patients’ rights. After being stonewalled for weeks, Lilly discovers that Shana has been threatened by sadistic so-called caregivers, given mind-deadening drugs without consent, and held for hours in a tiny, bare cell without food or water. Lily will have to use all her knowledge of the law to find a way to free Shana. Lily does not know that Shana faces another danger — one that isn’t institutional. A sociopath is in hiding at the hospital, using the organization’s criminal activities for his own purposes. And Shana is his new obsession.
