SAINT JUDY tells the true story of Los Angeles immigration attorney Judy Wood, who single-handedly changed the United States Law of Asylum and saved countless lives in the process.
In a landmark case, one of her first as an immigration lawyer, Judy Wood represented an Afghan woman who fled her home country after being persecuted by the Taliban for opening a school for girls. After a tenacious battle both in and out of court, Judy’s efforts culminated in arguments before the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
All the while, Judy struggled as a single mother battling her own demons. Judy Wood serves as an important reminder that saints aren’t perfect, they’re regular people called to do extraordinary things.
