Plot Summary

John Williams (Courtney B. Vance) is an African-American attorney remembering one of his earliest and most personal cases -- in 1957, his own teenage nephew, Charlie (Garland Whitt), was charged with the murder of a white student. Charlie admits he committed the crime, but John believes the police bullied him into confessing. Charlie insists he is guilty, and the outraged public is more than ready to see the boy punished. Still, John believes Charlie is innocent and defends him in court.
