Former broadcast journalist leads a dedicated team of volunteers on a mission to gain the release of a wrongly convicted prisoner serving a life sentence.

The true story of an unlikely friendship between a white middle-class broadcast journalist and an African-American serving a life sentence in prison for a crime he did not commit. An amazing account of outrageous injustice contrasts with a poignant and sometimes humorous tale of two men who became brothers in faith.

"I can tell you he's a dear, good freind of mine. I didn't know there were still good people in this world, he's restored my faith in mankind." - Maurice Carter speaking to the press upon his release from prison.

"This release is due basically to Doug Tjapkes' tenacity." - Rubin "Hurricane Carter
