A biographical drama based on true events. It is based on a tragic case that shook people across the nation. When you are biased to such an extent that evidence and facts mean nothing to you, human lives perish without a fair trial. The controversial tale of Cameron Todd Willingham, who was charged and executed for killing his three children despite scientific evidence and expert testimony proved and bolstered his innocence. All these were brutally suppressed so that people could see that man hanging by the rope. Sometimes, the truth can be easily muted with illogical reasoning, conclusions, and questionable methods.
