Power. Manipulation. Obedience.
Becky and Sandra aren’t the best of friends. Sandra is a middle-aged manager at a fast-food restaurant; Becky is a teenaged counter girl who really needs the job. One stressful day (too many customers and too little bacon), a police officer calls, accusing Becky of stealing money from a customer’s purse, which she vehemently denies. Sandra, overwhelmed by her managerial responsibilities, complies with the officer’s orders to detain Becky. This choice begins a nightmare that tragically blurs the lines between expedience and prudence, legality and reason.

It's hard to believe that is based on true facts, Sorry American users, but I cant believe how people were so dumb and things went so far like that. Just realized it was real when i saw some scenes in internet. The movie has good actings and its very tense though.

Just make me thinking - how stupid they could be? Curious if this could happen in a different country though, were the police is not so powerful.
Here is the real event's surveillance video http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=d03_1236269064
