"Justice for Maurice Henry Carter" is a powerful drama based on the true story of Doug Tjapkes, a former broadcast journalist and church organ salesman, and Maurice Henry Carter, a wrongly convicted man serving time for shooting a Benton Harbor police officer. For ten years, these two men struggled to secure Carter’s freedom with a team of volunteers and students from the Innocence Project, forging a unique friendship -- and brotherhood -- along the way.
