"An Unreal Dream: The Michael Morton Story"
Directed by Al Reinert, the film portrays the harrowing true tale of Michael Morton. Wrongly convicted of the brutal murder of his young wife, Morton spends a quarter century in the Texas prison system, cut off from his only child, who believed him to be guilty of destroying their family. Collaborating with his attorney and the Innocence Project, Morton clears himself through DNA testing. In the process he brings to bear the plight of America's unjust imprisonments.
