This documentary is sometimes very painful to watch, it shook me like not many documentaries have. It is about tremendous injustice and also tremendous courage. It is about family and sadness, about fighting and seeking justice, about racism in our society, about judges and CO and what happens in prison, about solitary confinement and second chances. But most of all, it is about one young man, whose incredible strength could and will hopefully unable a change in the American justice system. It's a must-watch.
