In the spring of 1980, a teenager is gunned down in the streets of Flatbush, Brooklyn. The police pressure a child witness to identify a suspect. As a result, Colin Warner, an 18-year-old kid from nearby Crown Heights, is wrongfully convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. Colin’s childhood friend Carl ‘KC’ King devotes his life to fighting for Colin’s freedom. He works on appeals, takes loans for lawyer fees and becomes a legal courier to learn the court system. This incredible true story is adapted from the acclaimed This American Life segment by writer/director Matt Ruskin, with Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out, Selma, Miles Ahead)  playing Colin Warner and Nnamdi Asomugha (Beasts of No Nation, Hello My Name Is Doris) as Carl King.

Stanfield is exceptional, his visage a mixture of bewilderment, humiliation, and simmering rage.” -Village Voice

The film sketches an effective picture of the legal system’s countless crevasses and sinkholes into which a blameless person can easily be shoved.”
