James Joseph Richardson was an orange picker in Florida when he was wrongfully convicted of murdering his seven children in 1967. He spent 21 years in prison, until he was released in 1989 when the conviction was overturned and he was declared innocent. For a moment, he became a national celebrity and the face of the Innocence Movement. Yet for the past 25 years he has been surviving on donations from friends while attempting to receive compensation from the state. The documentary revisits his case, raising questions about small-town racial prejudices, the judicial system, corrupt police and politicians, and an evaluation of the concept of restorative compensatory justice. Using archival footage, photographs, and documents, the film attempts to piece all the elements together to tell a story over 40 years in the making.
