In his most incendiary case, that of Walter McMillian, who was sentenced to death for the murder of an 18-year-old girl in spite of overwhelming evidence proving his innocence he makes his rattles others with his legal maneuvering. In spite of overt systemic racism, he fights for Walter’s freedom – and that of others like him. Starring Michael P. Jordan and Jamie Foxx.
