They were sentenced to death for a crime they had not committed. They spent years in prison. They were reborn on the day they were declared innocent and released. Ron, Shujaa, Greg, Albert. This is the story of four friends. Of their individual and collective struggle. The battle of four exonerated men who wanted to put an end to capital punishment. And also the story of their wives, sisters, daughters, the women who stayed by their sides. A fable of friendship and love. A journey from Texas to Washington, to end an inhumane and unjust system.
