Just Mercy takes us to young lawyer Bryan Stevenson’s (Michael B. Jordan) true and historical fight as he willingly chose to defend people wrongly convicted.
Still as a young lawyer, Stevenson will take up the cause of Walter McMillian (Jamie Foxx) who’s been sentenced to death for the far-reaching murder of an 18-year-old girl.
