America’s longest wrongfully held exonerated person, Rickey Jackson, returns to the prison where his 39 year journey of survival began and guides his younger self from death row to freedom. A true story about the triumph of hope, forgiveness, and perseverance through the darkest and most dire of circumstances that begins in violence and ends with love.
Rickey Jackson, just 18 years old at the time, was sentenced to the electric chair in 1975 with no physical evidence and based solely on the eye-witness testimony of a 12 year old neighborhood paper boy, Edward Vernon.
