Storyline

In 1993 David Dougherty was found guilty and imprisoned for the abduction and rape of his 11 year old neighbor. It took two trials, two high court appeals, a petition to the Governor General and 3 years, 6 months and 1 week in prison before David finally won his freedom and was found not guilty of the crime he didn't commit. But it wouldn't have happened without the unrelenting efforts of three individuals - a journalist, a lawyer and a scientist - who put their own personal and professional lives on the line in order to prove that David Dougherty was innocent.

A story about a man protesting his innocence
23 March 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A story about a man protesting his innocence through the judicial system after he was accused by his 11 year old female neighbor of rape and abduction. The movie is set in Auckland, New Zealand in the early 1990's and the focus is on jail time and court appearances by the accused man David Dougherty. The viewer gets to witness how slow the court system really is in reaching a decision and how a man's life hangs in the balance while evidence and testimony is considered. He also had a journalist helping him who researched his case and went beyond the call of duty and believed in him. The movie is based on a true story and as events unfolded it held my attention throughout.
