    • Synopsis
    • A life of financial and emotional struggle in the modest suburbs of the Michigan state capital of Lansing has been the way of life for penniless single mother Lana Murfin and her precocious young daughter Maxie. The two ladies have relied on each other for years through the ups and downs. A once promising law school student at Columbia, Lana eventually found herself wrapped in the misfortune that life tends to hand out – with no law career.

      After getting slapped with a nonsense traffic ticket on her way to work as a belittled drink server at local strip club Smelly Pits, Lana loses her patience and finally decides to start taking a stand. Before getting fired from this lousy job, she uses her potent legal prowess to hustle some abusive attendants of a rowdy bachelor party for enough money to get her by until she can figure out what to do next.

      A handsome and charming new male neighbor, Drox, moves in next door to the girls and makes quick friends with Maxie. However, it takes some work on his part to chip away the ice and befriend a guarded Lana. This new and unexpected ally along with a fresh desire to take back her life gives Lana serious motivation.

      With the hefty and unfair traffic ticket looming over her, she heads to court and seeks justice. As prepared as a good lawyer should be, Lana takes on the system and wins. This victory ignites the spark to get back to her legal roots and consider opening a law firm, even without a license to practice.
