Pleading

by Rob Drummond

Freya and Michael - two Western teenagers - have been on a gap-year, travelling round the world. But now, during a stopover on the journey home, they have been arrested. What started out as a holiday has become a nightmare.

After spending some time in Australia they enter a country in the Far East and are found to have drugs in their luggage. After spending three weeks in prison their case is about to be heard in court, but first their defence barrister has to find out how they will plead and make them aware of the possible outcomes, including the death penalty. Can he broker a deal with the prosecution to save their lives?

Producer/director: David Ian Neville.
