Brian Banks (tt3920820)
When Brian Banks was 17 years old, he had a real chance at a professional NFL football career until his classmate, Kennisha, accused him of rape after he scorned her at school.
A decade later, after unjustly spending years in prison, Brian lives a half life because most people see him only as a sex offender. He lives with his mother and wears an ankle bracelet. He has difficulty finding a job. He's can't go near children and many public places.
Yet, evidence of his innocence was ignored during the trial. He was pushed to take a plea deal. The California Innocence Project and Justin Brook decide to take on Brian's case to help him finally gain justice and pursue his dream.
