Documentarian Al Reinert's compelling portrait of Michael Morton, a man convicted of brutally beating his wife to death in 1987, suggests that there may have been a miscarriage of justice in Morton's trial and sentencing. Morton has continued to insist he was not responsible for the murder throughout his stay in prison, and hopes his self-proclaimed innocence will help in an inquiry suggesting the prosecutor in his case never turned over information to his defense that may have exonerated him.
