Dallas VideoFest 26: An Unreal Dream: The Michael Morton Story

In 1986, Michael Morton's wife, Christine, is brutally murdered in front of their only child, and Michael is convicted of the crime. Locked away in Texas prisons for a quarter century, he is forgotten by all but his parents and a small team of dedicated attorneys. In this "unreal dream," the price of a wrongful conviction goes well beyond one man's loss of freedom. Screened in partnership with Make Art with Purpose for MAP 2013.
