This movie was very moving. Tichina Arnold did an amazing job. This was a touching, real life situation that should never have happened. This women was held captive, and abused by a sick white man for years...yet they executed her for defending herself. How dare they pardon her decades later. That only seemed like a sick joke to me. Well done, and excellent cast.
