In a world frequented by junkies, dealers and thieves, Laura is an angel searching for a way out. Tonight, she is on the street to score as a taxi ride spins her back in touch with an old friend, Jack, and the shelter she seeks. In a nearby alley, Trevor, a gifted soccer player, and his girlfriend, Fiona, kiss. They laugh and she teasingly calls for help. Her call is heard - and so is the gunshot that reverberates through the streets. A shot that will intertwine the destinies of several individuals in a tidal wave of change. A nation is transfixed by the Law TV broadcast of the trail of Constable Cobbin and Constable Muller, who stand accused of viciously beating and shooting Trevor. As the trail unfolds, the truth emerges- a truth imbued with the power to change the life of a girl who dreams of a world without dope.
