The days of slavery have returned. Juveniles risk losing their freedom for almost any crime. Officials are of course available for bribing to parents willing to grease a palm or two to keep their child free.
A teenage boy is accused falsely of selling drugs. His mom gets a promise from a judge that if the $5,000 loan she applied for was granted he would keep her son free. But the judge had also promised the boy as a slave to another woman if she came up with the $5,000 first. The mom and this woman have been rivals going back to their high school days. The mom lost out coming up with the money 6 hours too late.
This can be two males instead of the mom and her rival.
I'm looking for someone to play the boy first, but I can be convinced to play the woman
