This is the story of the toughest sentencing law in America as chronicled by those who were intimately involved in the fight to see it enacted and who believe in it passionately. It is the story of one family's heart-break, of the difference one ordinary man can make, of behind-the-scenes maneuvering by soft-on-crime, liberal politicians in an effort to eviscerate the law, and it's the story of the ultimate victory by a majority of Californians who, in a reversal of decades of citizen neglect, defied the crime "experts" and voted for commonsense and justice.
