A documentary about struggles for justice in Rhode Island
RI law allows people on probation to be incarcerated for crimes for which they have been found innocent or for which the charges have been dismissed. This documentary follows the story of several men who were presumed guilty and never given a fair chance to demonstrate their innocence. The families of these imprisoned men take the issue to the Rhode Island Statehouse, where they tell their stories in an effort to reform the law.

Stronger Than Their Walls is currently organizing screenings around Rhode Island. Please contact to arrange a screening--at your house, your church, your community center, anywhere.
