A powerful and thought-provoking true story, “Just Mercy” shadows world-renowned civil rights defense attorney Bryan Stevenson as he recounts his experiences and details his history-making case of a condemned death row prisoner whom he fought to free. Walter McMillian was sentenced to die for a notorious murder, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds-and the system-stacked against them.
