Atlanta, 1913 – Guilty Until Proven Innocent.

Atlanta, Georgia is rocked when 13-year-old Mary Phagan is found murdered inside the pencil factory where she worked. Leo Frank, the factory’s Jewish owner, is convicted and sentenced to hang. The town’s hunger for justice, fueled by racism and the fever of the trial, forces the governor to re-examine the verdict. As Frank’s wife fights for justice, others attempt to take the law into their own hands.
