Based on a true story, Harvard law graduate Bryan Stevenson walks away from a high-flying career to defend the wrongly condemned and those not afforded proper representation. With the support of local advocate Eva Ansley, he tackles the controversial case of Walter McMillian, who was sentenced to die for the murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite the preponderance of evidence proving his innocence, and the only testimony against him coming from a criminal with a motive to lie. With this, Stevenson becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds—and the system—stacked against them. Stars Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx and Rob Morgan.
