The movie, Conviction, is based on the true story of Kenny Waters who was wrongfully convicted for a heinous murder in Massachusetts. Betty Ann Waters, Kenny's sister, believed her brother was innocent and never gave up on him. Betty Ann puts herself through law school to fight for her brother and eventually gets the Innocence Project involved.
I would highly recommend this movie. Conviction gives a realistic portrayal of the frustrations and emotional upheaval felt by those that are affected by a wrongful conviction, and illustrates what is necessary to overturn a wrongful conviction within our legal system.
