This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Courtroom conflict with Steve Coogan and Angela Riseborough.

Proving once again his acting prowess, Steve Coogan shines as a jaded lawyer sent to defend a hopeless murder case in a powerful courtroom drama that puts South Africa’s penal system in the dock. Adapted from Chris Marnewick’s novel, which was based on true events, and featuring some deeply harrowing vignettes of life on Death Row, this seemingly straightforward story gently and compellingly unfolds into a heart-rending call to arms in the fight against the death penalty.
