Alexandra Lange’s entire existence turned into a living hell when the man she married, father of her kids, started beating and severely abusing her. Terrified, living a veritable nightmare under her own roof, Alexandra tried everything to break free or get help without endangering her kids. In vain.
Desperate, after years of ever-increasing horror and isolation, Alexandra finally fought back and committed the irreparable. She killed, in order to stay alive.
Based on a true story, the three-day trial of a woman with everything to lose, who must face inevitable consequences.
