This powerful, moving documentary tells the story of Fox Rich (full name: Sibil Fox Richardson), who spends 18 years fighting for the release of her husband Rob from prison. The film contains black-and-white home video footage dating back to the beginning of the story, which director Garrett Bradley then assembled around her modern-day footage (also black-and-white), as Fox — who is also raising six children by herself — turns her fight into a full-time profession. It's a gripping story, but, as the bold title indicates, it's also heartbreakingly symbolic of a larger issue: Black men targeted, captured, and trapped in a justice system that cares nothing about them.
