About The Film

Suleiman al-Abid sat in prison for 27 years for the rape and murder of Hanit  Kikos. His refusal to confess to a crime he strongly claims he did not commit, prevents him from being released. Has al-Abid – a black, Bedouin, mentally retarded man – been given a fair and equal opportunity before the law, or is a negligent and racist system responsible for a colossal miscarriage of justice and for the real killer still roaming free?
