Told across two timelines, this movie shares the story of Ellen’s stormy relationship with her twenty-year old drug-addict son, Abie Pakkies. In 2007, his death caused a stir worldwide when it was revealed that his mother was the one who murdered him.

When advocate Adrian Samuels takes on the case, he is determined to prove that Ellen had no choice. But what compelled her to stop seeking help? How does a mother become desperate enough to take her own son’s life?
