Not Yet Rated| 1 hr. 40 min.

Plot Summary
When two white women accuse nine black boys of raping them in Scottsboro, Ala., the town erupts into a furor of outrage. An all-white jury finds the boys guilty, but when the Supreme Court rejects the decision, the case is sent back to Alabama where it is retried under Judge Horton (Arthur Hill). Despite the details exonerating the boys, neither the community nor the jury is willing to find the boys innocent, obliging Horton to insist upon additional trials at the expense of his reputation.
