For media educator

A powerful and thought-provoking true-based story, Just Mercy tells how young lawyer Bryan Stevenson embarks on a historic fight for justice. After graduating from Harvard University, Bryan has plenty of attractive career options, but instead, he heads to Alabama to defend the wrongly convicted and those who have not been able to afford a proper lawyer. In this work, he is supported by a local assistant, Eva Ansley.

One of his first and most controversial cases is the Walter McMillian case. This has been sentenced to death in 1987 for the high-profile murder of an 18-year-old girl – even though the evidence of his innocence was overwhelming and the only witness in the case was a criminal who had a good reason to lie. Over years on the job, Bryan becomes embroiled in a tangle of legal and political wrangles, and also faces open and ruthless racism while defending Walter and his fellow fates, even when the odds—and the system—are stacked against them.
