15 to Life is the story of Florida's Kenneth Young, who, at age 15, received four life sentences for a series of armed robberies in which no one was injured. Like most children who receive life sentences, Young, who had been recruited by his mother's crack dealer to rob hotels during a 30-day crime spree, is African American, indigent and neglected.

The film follows his legal battle for release after the US Supreme Court ruled life-without-parole sentences unconstitutional for children who haven't killed.
