A dramatization of the headline-making case in the 1930s of the controversial rape trial involving nine young black men and two white women, and of the embattled southern judge whose initial decision to free them made him a pariah in the community and ruined his career. The nine ultimately were convicted but the case subsequently was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court. Horton died in 1967, the last of the Scottsboro boys in 1978. Fielder Cook (director) and John McGreevey (writer) each won an Emmy Award nomination for the film.
