Brief Synopsis

A television movie based on the true story of Sister Pauline Quinn, who created a prison program designed to help female convicts train dogs that are used to help the disabled. Joan Thomas has lived a hard life tangled with crime and drugs. When she lands in prison, she gives up hope of ever finding

The unconditional love of the dogs profoundly affects the inmates. Caught in an inmate fight, Thomas is thrown out of the program by Supervisor Donovan, but Quinn pleads to have Thomas return and complete the training. Suddenly, a review board shuts the program down, devastating Quinn's hopes and wrecking weeks of hard work. For the first time in her life, Thomas seeks to help others by appealing to Donovan for a last chance to prove the program's worth -- with consequences even Quinn could not have imagined.
