SYNOPSIS:
Two Native American judges, both strong women, are forging innovative justice systems to keep their people out of prison, prevent children from being taken from their communities, and stop the school-to-prison pipeline that plagues their young people. Their justice is personal, dedicated, harking back to age-old traditions to help tribal members live in the modern world. Vérité footage of these judges’ lives and work form the backbone of the documentary, while the heart of the film follows several cases in and out of their courtrooms. In their courts, Judges Abby and Claudette are modeling restorative justice in action.
