Christopher Scott was released from prison after serving 13 years of a life sentence for a murder he didn't commit—and he's not alone in Dallas County, Texas, where more than 30 one-time prisoners have been exonerated.
Jamie Meltzer's now-inspiring, now-devastating documentary follows Scott and his team of fellow exonerees, Steven Phillips and Johnnie Lindsey, as they work to build a detective agency that investigates the cases of inmates who proclaim their innocence—and perhaps come to terms with their own experiences of injustice in the process.
Of course, attempting to right the wrongs of the US court system is a struggle with long odds. These three fledgling detectives have to face the challenge of disputing the original investigations as they track down eyewitnesses and the real perpetrators of the crimes for which their clients are doing time. Are they up to the almost-impossible task of freeing innocent convicts? And even if they are, what toll will it take on the personal lives they're trying to rebuild?
