Storyline

Bryan Stevenson, a young lawyer, finds creates the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending the poor, the wrongly condemned and women and children. One of his first cases is that of Walter McMillian, a young man who is sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn't commit. The case draws Stevenson into a tangle of conspiracy and political machination that transforms his understanding of mercy and justice forever.
