Netflix Drops Trailer “Cyntoia Brown Story” Docu-Series.
Written by laserteam on April 15, 2020
The story of Cyntoia Brown, who was released in 2019 after 15 years in prison for a murde which she and supporters long argued was a clear case of self-defense, takes center stage in the new Netflix documentary Murder to Mercy.
‘When I was 16, I did a horrible thing,” Brown says in the doc’s new trailer, released Wednesday. “I do pray that you show me mercy and that you give me a second chance.”
When Brown’s release from prison was announced in August of last year, the National Women’s Law Center shared a message of celebration. The justice-minded organization, however, also shared a reminder that she “never should have been in prison in the fist place” and that support for other survivors in similar predicaments must continue.
Murder to Mercy, directed by Daniel H. Birman, hits Netflix on April 29.
