- What does life hold after 20 years in jail on a false murder charge?
Keiko Aoki spent two decades in prison after being convicted of killing her 12-year-old daughter. In 2015, a court reversed the verdict, and she reclaimed her innocence and freedom. But Keiko quickly finds out that her world has changed drastically. Her son is now a grown man of 29. Her parents are in their eighties and in need of care. Keiko has aged too and is now 51. Overwhelmed by her new reality, she murmurs, "I'd rather be back in jail..." This is a story of rebirth, of how one woman -- falsely labeled as her daughter's killer and robbed of 20 years -- struggles to reclaim her family and her life.
