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>

This movie Is So Horrible.
10 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

The whole plot is that this girl, has a bag of Marjiwana in her suitcase, when she went to Indonesia. So the girl opens up the bag, and see's the Marjiwana in the bag, and knows it is Marjiwana because of the smell.

Now, the laws in Indonesia are EXTREMELY strict against Drugs. The trial was to execute her. Now this might be strict, but there are A LOT of drug dealers in Indonesia, and I'd see why their so strict.

A thing I noticed was, they NEVER gave her a fair trial. The whole thing seemed to have been planned out, and sometimes I wondered if the court was listening enough to tell that this poor girl was innocent. They never checked for finger prints, even though a ton of people would just pass by, pick up a bit of the Marjiwana from the bag, and say something along the lines of "Shame". Then put it back, and walk away.

There were even some people outside of the court and stuff having signs saying to execute her. This whole thing was stupid. How about we Execute those people who are convicting this girl, without evidence, or a fair trial. This whole movie was messed up. That was why it was good.
