Legal Question in Criminal Law in North Carolina

My friend has been in prison for 14 years and has 4 left. She had 2 sentences box-card for robbery. Im trying to have her case re-opened but the clerk of court is telling me there is no motion of discovery, I thought it was required to have a motion of discovery because this shows proof of evidence. I dont understand. I know I will be getting a lawyer but im just trying to figure out if I have a bases here with there being no motion of discovery.
