The movie shares the story of Vicky White, a 56-year-old Alabama former corrections officer who fell for a then-38-year-old inmate, helped him escape from prison and led police on a nearly two-week chase that ended in her death.

Wendy McLendon-Covey stars as White in the Lifetime movie. Rossif Sutherland plays Casey White, the prisoner she falls for after he gets transferred to the prison where she works to serve out a 75-year sentence (the two were not related despite sharing the same last name).

Vicky and Casey went on the run on April 29, 2022, and were captured 11 days later.
