Just Mercy

by Bryan Stevenson


The American criminal justice system is pretty different in real life to the way it appears on TV. Your average person may not know it, but there are actually a lot of injustices going on behind the scenes.

Bryan Stevenson is an American lawyer with plenty of hands-on experience working inside America's prisons and courtrooms. In Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, Stevenson takes a hard look at the system that's meant to safeguard its citizens' rights, but has become a cruel way to mistreat vulnerable members of society.
