Plot Synopsis

A passive, once abused mother, now remarried to a weak salesman, cannot control her incorrigible 16 year old daughter. When a cop sees the girl striking her mother he calls it assault and places her in a detention center. Mom, thinking an overnight stay in jail will do the kid some good, finds she cannot extricate her daughter from the brutal and incompetent juvenile justice system. Realizing her terrible mistake, she fights the authorities to get her child released.
