Synopsis by Dan Pavlides

This drama of two brothers falsely accused of robbery and murder is based on an actual incident. The miscarriage of justice begins when an honest man with lots of money disappears from a small village. A police lieutenant decides the crime should be solved and throws bogus charges at the innocent brothers, and they admit to being accessories to the crime after being repeatedly tortured. In spite of no evidence of a body or the missing money, the brothers are jailed, and they begin a horrifying journey through the mazes of the justice system. A heroic lawyer never wavers in his attempt to free the two men.
