A dramatic series that captures the reality of a true story of five teenagers who were convicted of a heinous charge but are actually innocent. In the spring of 1989, the five boys were arrested for rape, where they were questioned and forced to confess that charge even though they were not. Those who carried out the charge were a woman in Central Park.
This is a work that wants viewers to see these people, and the fullness of their humanity, above everything else. What this means is a miniseries that's both profoundly rich and extraordinarily hard to watch.
