This is a story of mothers, love, regrets and redemption, and of secrets from many years passed that cast long shadows in our lives. It's about how Deborah Jiang-Stein came to be pulled over by two highway patrolmen at 19-years old, with a trunk load of dope, a .38 revolver and a 10" switch blade...and that's only the beginning.
