Academy Award Winner, Best Documentary Feature

Beating out some of the most poignant and powerful films of the last decade, this gripping edge-of-your-seat whodunit catapulted to the top of "must see" lists everywhere when it emerged to win the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Invigorating and heart-wrenching at the same time, it is the stuff suspense novelists only dream of writing.

Jacksonville, Florida, May 2000. Mary Ann Stephens is shot in the head at point blank range in front of her husband. Two hours later, Brenton Butler, a 15 year old black male, is arrested walking down a nearby street. Mr. Stephens identifies him. Butler signs a confession.

Everyone involved with the case, from investigators to journalists, is ready to condemn Butler, except his lawyer, Patrick McGuinness. A dazzling and magnetic presence of Hollywood proportions, McGuiness reopens the inquiry, and in a dramatic and absolutely spine-tingling sequence of events, he and his team discover a slew of shocking and troubling elements about the case. Did Brenton write his own confession? Where is the concrete evidence? And most importantly, can the police be lying?
