The story of playwright Liza Jessie Peterson, whose acclaimed play "The Peculiar Patriot" was shut down mid-performance at the Louisiana State Penitentiary, commonly known as Angola Prison. The film examines how one woman's play challenged the country's largest prison-plantation and impacted the men in the audience long after the record of her visit was erased by the institution's administration.
