Storyline

In 2004, Australian Schapelle Corby, 27, is arrested at the airport in Bali. She and her family arrive for a vacation; ten pounds of marijuana are in her unlocked boogie-board bag. Seven months later, she's tried for capital crimes. The film picks up the story before the trial and follows it through the verdict. We meet Corby and her extended family. Her cause is adopted by an Aussie businessman, Ron Bakir; he promises legal help. We see a media frenzy at the trial, and we watch the proceedings; we witness her family's pain. Did she do it? Did a family member use her bag in a smuggling attempt? Or, did baggage handlers do it? Is the trial fair? Will she be found guilty? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Ms. Corby
6 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary brought me to tears. I was and still feel very sad and angry about the whole situation. I would never ever go to Indonesia. I believe Ms. Corby is innocent. The president of Australia sent a letter to the government of Indonesia saying that some of the workers at the airport in Australia was arrested for trafficking drugs out of the country the same day that Ms. Corby got on the flight. The Austrailian government obviously does'not care about their citizen's because they did nothing in their power to try and get Ms. Corby out of that dump of a prison in that stupid Tourism county. How could a judge sit there and laugh at a person who's pleading for mercy. It does'not make sense to me at all. If Ms. Corby was a United states Citizen, the Unites States government would have done everything possible to get her out of that county and back to the Land of The Free. Shame on the Australia government and shame on the Indonesian government. FREE MS. CORBY.
