"Inspirational story of an attorney's fight for justice within his inner city community. Being an attorney, I know first hand that, many times, it is not so much about the guilt or innocence of our clients, but whether they have the economic means to prove their innocence. Unfortunately, it is all too true that the disparity between the rich and poor is most evident within our prison system. When you have a public defender with a case load of approx. 100 cases per month, versus an individual who can retain private counsel; there is no physical way that the public defender with 100 cases can devote the sufficient time and resources to present an adequate case, in most instances. And that, unfortunately, is how many cases get pled out."
Awesome Movie that is VERY true to life.

"Very True Depiction of the ever growing injustice that is taking place everday in Minority Communities around the county while everyone just sits around idly not doing anything to change it. I highly recommend this movie to anyone, but especially blacks and hispanics, so that you can see how easily it could be you or someone that you love going through a similar situation. This movie makes you wanna get up and start a march or just want to do more to change the unfair practices used against Blacks and other minorities in the "so-called" name of JUSTICE. We need to all come together to make a change. This is how moved the movie made me. By the way, mandatory maximums and minimums should be abolished! Well, I hope you check out the movie which has an awesome cast of actors to highlight a heavy issue."
