Synopsis: Ruth Jenkins, a 50 year old Christian woman in Jessup, Texas is raising her granddaughter and minding her own business. That’s when a young homeless man breaks in. Ruth confronts the intruder – a gun in one hand and a mobile phone in the other. She’s dials “91…” Dialing the last “1” will mean mandatory prison time for the young drifter. In that gap, Ruth and the intruder find new levels of compassion as they both struggle to do what’s “right.”
