In January 2017, Chelsea's lawyer takes the call: President Obama, in his last days in office, has commuted her client's sentence to time served plus 120 days. Chelsea, who began gender transitioning while in prison, had been sentenced to 35 years for passing on nearly 750,000 classified US documents to WikiLeaks. The leaked information revealed illegal practices, including torture and abuse, engaged in by the US military in Iraq. After serving time, Chelsea now has to adjust to life outside jail – and as a woman. In this revealing documentary, she talks openly about her motivation behind releasing the documents, about her difficult years behind bars, her mental health, and finally her need to be herself.
