Storyline

Meg McCleary is a public defender whose racist attitudes taint the way she operates in court and in life. Meg forbids Heather, her teen-aged daughter, to date Derrick solely because he is black. But worse in Othniel's mind is that Meg, in her younger years while a police detective, accused Hector Soto, a Hispanic man, of killing Meg's professional and personal partner, Det. David Hayes. Soto was tried, convicted and executed due to Meg's testimony. Soto was however not David's killer. Othniel gives Meg a second chance of saving Soto from the death penalty. She is sent back to that case as a police detective, but a Hispanic one named Christine Esposito. As Christine, Meg has to find that part of her younger self that has compassion for her fellow man, regardless of their skin color. Written by Huggo
