55 STEPS listing

55 Steps is based on the inspiring true story of Eleanor Riese, a mental illness patient, who brings a class action suit to give competent mental patients the right to have a say in their medication while they’re in a hospital, and Colette Hughes, the lawyer appointed to her case. Eleanor’s fight for justice goes all the way up to the Supreme Court of California and, despite a stormy start and Eleanor’s difficult personality, the two women develop a mutually rewarding relationship.
