Tomita plays Sallie, a compassionate and gentle yet strong-willed attorney who takes on the child abuse case pro-bono for the greater good of a broken criminal court system.

Whose Child follows a woman (Anna Schafer) working in public relations at a children’s hospital who gets her life turned around when she is assigned to be an “Auntie” for a young boy named Billy. Billy’s case is severe; he’s suffering from heavy head trauma, is in a coma, and is barely hanging on to life. When she realizes that the incident was a domestic abuse case, she takes matters into her own hands to overturn a system that would have otherwise failed him.
