Academy Award winner and Golden Globe winner, Viola Davis executive produces and stars in “Custody”. The star-studded cast includes Golden Globe nominee Hayden Panettiere, Academy Award nominee Catalina Sandino Moreno, Academy Award winner Ellen Burstyn and Emmy and Golden Globe winner Tony Shalhoub. The movie revolves around three women brought together when a hard-working single mother Sara Diaz’s (Moreno) children are taken from her when she is suspected of injuring her son.
Ally Fisher (Panettiere), a recent law school graduate, is assigned to represent her case before Judge Martha Schulman (Davis), a veteran of the Family Court System. Outside the courtroom, each of these women has to deal with the complexities of their own lives as the legal system pushes Sara to the point of kidnapping her children from foster care. Though they are from very different walks of life, each struggles with the contradictions within their own families, as they wrestle with an imperfect system that tries to define what constitutes good parenting.
