  • 5 stars "5/5, a great movie. I loved every minutes of it. I cried through out the entire movie. I would watch it again. it's so sad to see the injustice in the legal system. All because certain people cannot afford a well represented lawyer to defend them. thanks for the CIP, who helped Brian, who decided not to give up on himself and convinced the CIP, that he was innocent. So SAD, SAD, SAD, SAD,SAD...……….."
