After suffering an abusive childhood, Amanda Bradley (Juliette Lewis) finds herself a homeless prostitute at the age of 15. Billy Canton (Brad Pitt) is the hustler who both comforts and uses her. Life doesn't seem as if it could get any worse, but it does: Amanda kills a man while on drugs and becomes one of the youngest people to receive the death sentence. The only thing standing between the troubled teenager and lethal injection is public defender Buddy Thornton (Michael Tucker).
