In the spring of 1980, a teenager was shot in the streets of Flatbush, Brooklyn. Police are putting pressure on a witness to identify a suspect. As a result, Colin Warner, an 18-year-old kid in the Crown Heights neighbourhood, is arrested and abusively sentenced for a crime he did not commit, being a victim of a deeply corrupt system that refuses to listen. Unjustly sentenced to life imprisonment, Colin loses his hope of recovering his innocence, but his best friend, Carl King, devotes his life to restore Colin’s freedom, pursuing all the tracks for years. King is fighting for over 20 years to reverse the verdict, taking loans for lawyers and teaching the judiciary. The film captures an emotional authenticity that brings light to a painful personal story, and a terrible systemic problem.
