Commuted tells the story of Danielle Metz, a 50-year-old African-American woman whose triple life sentence (in New Orleans' biggest RICO drug case of the early '90s) was commuted by President Obama in August 2016. Back home in New Orleans after 23 years behind bars, Metz tries to find her footing and reconcile her present with her past regrets.
