Academy Award-winning actress Viola Davis executive produces and stars in the film Custody. It’s a legal drama set in New York City about a young single mother named Sara Diaz who’s been accused of child abuse. She’s being represented by recent law school graduate Ally Fisher (Hayden Panettiere). Sarah says she has done nothing wrong and wants her two young children back. It’s really up to Judge Martha Schulman (Viola Davis) to make a decision, but Sara might make one before she “has her day in court.”
