In this intermittently very grim melodrama, Anna Leschek is very much down on her luck. Her no-good husband died drunk in a car crash, she lost her miserable, low-paying job at a clothing sweatshop, and can't get any kind of public assistance, much less a loan of any kind. She even tried taking off her clothes for a living at a strip bar, but her evident awkwardness earned her a humiliating round of boos which drove her away before she could complete her first appearance. When she and one of her three kids take a couple of toy guns and attempt to rob a bank, it seems like a logical response to her situation. At first, the efforts of her lawyer to get involved with her case seem like a good thing for both of them. He has lost wives and lovers to his passion for alcohol and is on the verge of losing his career. However, he tries to sober up long enough to help her, and he does succeed in getting her a good deal from the courts. However, neither one of them should have become romantically entangled -- particularly with one another.
