Having been banged up for weeks on end, Meena's had ages to prepare for her moment to speak out in court. And she's been looking forward to it. 

So when her barrister advised her not to take the stand during her trial, after days of listening to various witnesses speak out, Meena refused. But will she live to regret her decision?

Planning to make out she's meek and mild-mannered, Meena arrives in the courtroom fresh from her prison cell where she's been rehearsing her performance like mad.
