A Cry for Help: The Tracey Thurman Story
Based on the true story of Tracey Thurman, this is a scathing indictment of police complicity in spousal abuse. A battered wife repeatedly tries to get help from the police when she is continuously harassed and physically abused by her estranged husband. Denied their help, she is attacked in broad daylight, as the police just look on and do not go to her aid. She is nearly killed in the attack and afterwards started a precedent-setting lawsuit against the police for their lack of assistance when she was attacked.
