A documentary that examines the 1989 case of five black and Latino teenagers who were convicted of raping a white woman in Central Park. After having spent between 6 and 13 years each in prison, a serial rapist confessed to the crime.
Teen Michelle Carter's actions shocked a nation - but what really happened behind closed doors? This HBO special showcases the prosecution's point of view and alternately the defense's. Which side do you fall on?
I understand this show is about the exonerated five and the huge ordeal they endured. However, I missed one question that I believed is also not developed in the series: what happened to the jogger? how does she live now? has she ever met them? what's her position on the justice system?
Also, in my opinion they wanted to talk to too many people in a short time, and the result is not great.
