Young teenager Billie Calhoun is wrongly accused of setting a deadly arson fire that killed her mother and sister. After years in a juvenile detention center, she requests an early release around the age of 18, but it is denied. During the journey back to the center, she escapes the prison van to find the real killer of her mother and sister. Out on her own, she disguises herself and befriends a young cop named Matt Samoni, and together they set out to uncover the truth.
