- Filmed with unprecedented access to the key figures in the case.
- Watch every step in the tense trial.
- A riveting look inside one of the most fraught aspects of the justice system.
Evan Zimmerman was accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend, and a jury found him guilty. But Zimmerman made it back to court after he was able to show that his initial lawyer was so ineffective he deserved a new trial.
FACING LIFE captures the harrowing experience as the new trial unfolds. From the defense team's strategizing to the 11th-hour moves and the shattering conclusion, see how the tortuous process affected Zimmerman, who was nearly driven insane by the thought of going to prison again for a crime he said he did not commit.
