Plot Synopsis

Executive produced and directed by Liz Garbus, Alex Gibney, and Roger Ross Williams, THE INNOCENCE FILES is a one-hour documentary series that shines a light on the untold personal stories behind eight cases of wrongful conviction that the nonprofit organization the Innocence Project and organizations within the Innocence Network have uncovered and worked tirelessly to overturn. The nine-episode series is composed of three compelling parts: The Evidence, The Witness and The Prosecution. These stories expose difficult truths about the state of America's deeply flawed criminal justice system, while showing when the innocent are convicted, it is not just one life that is irreparably damaged forever: families, victims of crime and trust in the system are also broken in the process. On Wednesday, April 15, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released all nine episodes of THE INNOCENCE FILES.
