A documentary that everyone in Mexico (and other countries) should see
6 March 2011 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

This film is an eye-opener about a sad reality in my country, the unjust and corrupted conviction system.

The documentary follows the case of Toño, a flea market computer technician that happened to have the bad luck of being picked by the police as guilty of murdering a man who he didn't even meet. From that moment his life and his family's becomes a living hell because in Mexico you need to prove your innocence, so you're guilty until proved otherwise. So he's convicted for 20 years and now a couple of young lawyers take on the mission of helping him get his freedom and record all the re-trial process.

IMHO, it's the kind of important film not to be missed, and most important, to take action and demand that several reforms must be made.
