On May 1, 2005, Wendy Maldonado, an Oregon mother of four, called 911 in hysterics. “I just killed my husband,” she confessed. When the operator asked how long her husband had abused her, Maldonado replied, “Every f---ing day of my life.” Wendy, along with her eldest son Randy, pleaded guilty to manslaughter. This film follows Wendy and her family in the few days before she begins a 10-year prison sentence for the crime. Alternately shocking and heartbreaking, the film tells the story of one woman’s fateful decision to make a new life for herself and her children at all costs, even her own freedom.
