Gaslight. Girlboss. Gatekeep.
A funny meme, to be sure, but not so funny when it involves you, your best friend, and life in prison on the line. What lengths would you go to protect yourself from the truth you've been trying to hide for the better part of your young adult life? Who would you step on to keep that under wraps?  These are the waters that Kayli and Diana have been navigating, and have come back full force as Diana is trying to obtain the freedom that has been stripped from her. All Kayli has to do is tell the truth. Can she do that or will she retreat back to who she was at seventeen, just trying to protect her own skin?
