What Happens To The Innocent?

Synopsis

Imagine being convicted and sentenced to years in prison for a crime you did not commit. Years of your life lost and the only thing in your mind while in prison is to clear your name and prove your innocence. Finally after a long struggle and fight to clear your name you get released back into society, a world that has completely changed and is totally alien to you.

This film touches on some problems encountered by four miscarriages of justice victims after their release and explores the lack of help and support for these victims. Paddy Hill and John McManus also explain the work undertaken at the Miscarriages of Justice Organisation and their dream of building a retreat for the innocent.
