In 1986 Michael Morton's wife Christine was brutally murdered in front of their only child, and Michael was convicted of the crime. Locked away in Texas prisons for a quarter of a century, estranged from his son, he had years to ponder questions of justice and innocence, truth and fate. Though he was virtually invisible to society, the Innocence Project and Michael's pro bono attorney spent years fighting for the right to test DNA evidence found at the murder scene. Their discoveries ultimately reveal that the price of a wrongful conviction goes well beyond one man's loss of freedom.
