A powerful and thought-provoking true story, JUST MERCY follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson and his history-making battle for justice. One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian. In 1987, Walter was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence.

If we look away when a child is hurting, we’re all responsible, sir.
