Darrell “Diamond” Jones was wrongfully convicted at a trial where a white police officer gave false testimony before an all-white jury. During his 32 years of incarceration, he became a fierce advocate for inmates' rights. Living his motto "making a way out of no way," he created innovative prisoner education programs and produced anti-gang violence videos seen far beyond the prison walls. Finally, Darrell is granted a new trial and has a chance to prove his innocence. But has the system really changed? Will he be convicted again? Watch as Darrell again puts his fate in the hands of twelve jurors.
