This film follows the story of four young Latina women -- known as the 'San Antonio Four' -- who have been fighting since 1994 to clear their names of false charges and wrongful convictions that they gang-raped two young girls in Texas. Using the women's home video footage from 21 years ago combined with recent verité footage and interviews, the film explores their personal narratives and their search for exculpatory evidence to help their losing criminal trials, documenting their struggle against mythology, homophobia, ritual-abuse hysteria, and prosecutorial fervor in their struggle for exoneration.

powerful documentary. It is amazing what the coached and homophobic testimony of two little girls can do in the lives of the four women featured in this documentary. What they went through for close to 16 years is almost incomprehensible. Very well done doc... pacing was good and the subject matter is interesting. I would recommend the rent!
