Writer helps rehabilitated convict regain his freedom
23 June 2002 | by EwiSee all my reviews

A writer comes to teach a creative writing class in a prison hoping to find a story for his next best seller. Instead, he finds a fluent ex black panther that has been serving a long time, 20 years since a man was accidentally shot dead during a break in.

In order to help the convict out of jail, the writer must first help the victim's sister set herself free from the metaphorical prison she's been locking herself in for the last 20 years.

The movie is better than the average American TV drama.
