On June 22, 1999, Jessica Gonzales’ estranged husband Simon abducted their three young daughters in violation of a court-imposed domestic violence restraining order. Jessica called the police repeatedly over the next ten hours, begging the officers on duty to find her girls and bring them home safely, but they ignored and refused her pleas for help. At 3:00am, Simon drove to the police station and opened fire. The police shot him dead and found Jessica’s three children dead in his car. JESSICA GONZALES VS. THE UNITED STATES tells the story of Jessica's groundbreaking quest to strengthen the legal rights of the millions of women who hold restraining orders as she and her family struggle to overcome their immense tragedy and loss.
