Excellent documentary about some beautiful human beings. Also shows some appalling injustices from plea bargaining, parole board hearings, district attorney's office, laws circumvented, bureaucrats closing ranks. In some ways compares to One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch, except Deborah had 2 legal aid volunteers fighting for her.

None Of Us Are Free - If One Of Us Is Chained

By Solomon Burke

Well you better listen my sister's and brothers,
'Cause if you do you can hear
There are voices still calling across the years.
And they're all crying across the ocean,
And they're cryin across the land,
And they will till we all come to understand.

None of us are free.
None of us are free.
None of us are free, if one of us are chained.
None of us are free...
