Ryan Ferguson in Dream/Killer

Ryan Ferguson in Dream/Killer

In Columbia, Missouri in 2005, Ryan Ferguson was convicted of murder and sentenced to 40 years in prison despite no physical evidence linking the then-21-year-old to the crime. As he languished in a cell, his father Bill spent nearly 10 years building up evidence that would exonerate his son from his Kafkaesque nightmare.

Inspired by Errol Morris’ true-crime docu The Thin Blue Line, director Jenks (Room 335, MTV’s World of Jenks) dissects Ryan’s case, which is here told through the eyes of Ryan’s devoted father, whose persistent amateur sleuthing saved his son from a lifetime in prison.

The unrated film sets out to reveal the corruptive nature of power and brutally slow machinations of the U.S. justice system.
