They call themselves the Freedom Fighters, and they are looking to free innocent people still behind bars. Freedom Fighters is a character-driven documentary that follows these change-makers as they rebuild their lives, learn to investigate cases, work to support each other, and campaign to fix the criminal justice system. We will follow them as they learn the ropes of investigation--following leads, tracking down eyewitnesses and finding evidence that will make a strong case in court--on their first cases. Whatever they discover, we know their sleuthing will shed light on important and interesting issues within the criminal justice system.
