convictions. You've got to see this film.” - Dr. Rubin ‘Hurricane’ Carter, Innocence International

violence while seeking confessions for unsolved murders.

legal in Canada when many experts consider the scenario to be coercive entrapment. During her journey she meets several
people who have made false confessions and spent years in jail for murders they didn’t commit because of MR.BIG.
way to do away with MR.BIG is to make the public aware of this controversial tactic..." - Jason
