Powerful story chronicling the extraordinary life of The Guildford Four's Gerry Conlon following his release from prison. Charting Conlon's remarkable journey receiving over £1 million pounds, becoming a cause celebre at the Oscars and hanging out with Johnny Depp, Shane McGowan and Daniel Day-Lewis. Conlon seemed to have it all but away from the glamour, fuelled by an addiction to crack cocaine, his life was spiralling out of control. This story of Conlon's resilience to beat his demons whilst becoming a human rights campaigner against miscarriages of justice is simply the stuff of legend.
