As we draw near the January 1, 2017 premiere date for the soap star-studded movie, Soaps.com has learned details about what viewers can expect…

The story surrounds a rebellious teenager named Julie Plainview (Searcy), who resents the long hours her mother works in order to support them. After a high school graduation party goes bad, and a teacher is murdered, Julie is arrested for the crime and assigned a defense attorney named Ellen (McKellar), who is inexperienced in criminal law. With the help of an old friend named Ben Saverin (Bennett), a crime novelist, Ellen is forced to face a prosecutor, (Lilley), a disgruntled detective (White) and the wife of the murder victim in order to prove Julie’s innocence.
