Golden Globe® nominee Michelle Monaghan stars as Judy Wood. Saint Judy tells the inspirational true story of immigration attorney Judy Wood and her fight that changed the asylum law in the United States to allow women to become a protected class. The real case was argued in the 9th circuit court in Pasadena and a ruling was handed down in 1994. In the film inspired by the landmark case, Judy represents a woman forced to flee her home country after being persecuted by the Taliban for opening a school for girls. While juggling her life as a single mother, Judy fights tenacious battles in and out of court, not only saving her client's life, but changing the Law of Asylum in the United States.
