Young widow Jennifer Bradley (Mare Winningham) lets photographer and longtime friend Carrie Dixon (Felicity Huffman) snap seemingly harmless pictures of her young daughters. But when a photo lab employee notices that the girls are partially nude, she alerts police. As Det. John Collins (Chelcie Ross) tries to build a child pornography case, authorities remove the children from Bradley's home. Prosecutors soon take the case, forcing Bradley to fight for her freedom and family in court.
