Drama series in which a defence lawyer tries to finally uncover the truth of an old miscarriage of justice, while her husband goes to any lengths to conceal the truth about his own past.
Maya's trust is in tatters, but all her cards are played out. Can she find the strength for the final fight and change the course of US justice? And when the final piece of the jigsaw that links these two miscarriages of justice is revealed, what does that mean to her fight to 'go big'?
As Maya continues to fight the state authorities, all seems lost. Until a stranger appears with new information that forces Maya to question her understanding and uncover links between her two cases. Spurred on to discover the truth, Maya must go bigger, but is it too late?
First, the artwork Sidereel has for this show is wrong (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5057932/). When I saw the lineup of actors, I knew I had to tune in. Unfortunately, I great cast couldn't save this miniseries; which I suspect (based on the ending) is getting a second season. It was far too preachy and the connections were farfetched. *SPOILER ALERT* A lawyer stays on two cases for 20 years (one in the US and the other in the UK) and her husband is an undercover cop whose superiors don't want her to solve either case in an attempt to hide their own secret (which is never revealed). I think the writer wanted to highlight police brutality, corruption, and a separate justice system for minorities and the poor with a miniseries when a three-part news article in a reputable magazine might have been better.
