"Everyone thinks the problem is over. No, the problem's not over. It just got started." - Crystal, wife of Fernando Bermudez

After spending eighteen years in prison for a murder he did not commit, Fernando Bermudez struggles to rebuild his life.

Since 2004, 317 people like Fernando have been exonerated in the United States, often with little or no compensation for their legal strife and years irretrievably lost.
