After graduating from Harvard, Bryan heads to Alabama to defend those convicted unfairly or those who have not been properly represented.

One of his first and most incendiary cases is that of Walter McMillian, who, in 1987, was sentenced to death for murdering an 18-year-old girl, despite evidence proving his innocence and the fact that he is the only witness against him. it came from a criminal. In later years, Bryan becomes trapped in a maze of legal and political maneuvers, while fighting for Walter and others like him, despite the fact that everything is against him, including the legal system.
