Synopsis

As a young man, Bruce Godschalk of Pennsylvania openly confessed to a crime of rape on tape to the police. When he later admitted that his confession was the result of direct pressure, he was already serving a two-decade jail sentence and, without any legal resources, proclaimed his innocence. At this point, New York-based The Innocence Project, founded by Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld, decided to take on his case, using its DNA-testing methods in an attempt to validate Godschalk's claim.
