This film avoids the well-trodden tale of Mumia's frame-up and the injustices done to him, and instead situates his life in the span of history he has lived through and addressed, from his childhood, through his young adulthood and early professional journalism, and on through his valiant efforts to stay connected and relevant to history and society despite his isolation on Death Row. Let's the facts speak for themselves on the cowardice of National "Public" Radio. The film features readings from Mumia's numerous books, audio of some of his commentaries, extensive interviews with people who "knew him when," including his sister, and some dramatizations of his relationships with his family, including a moving tribute to his mother, and a painful scene with his daughter, who is finally able to visit but prevented from touching him by a wall of glass. Well worth seeing more than once.
