Young African-American lawyer Bryan Stevenson fights for justice. After graduating from Harvard, he is offered a choice of numerous lucrative jobs, but instead he goes to Alabama to defend the people wrongfully convicted there together with the lawyer Eva Ansley. One of his first cases is that of Walter McMillian, who was sentenced to death in 1987 for the infamous murder of an 18-year-old girl, although there is enough evidence to prove his innocence.
