Synopses & Reviews
A gripping, edge-of-your seat whodunit, Murder on a Sunday Morning catapulted to the top of "must see" lists everywhere when it emerged to win the Academy Award(R) for Best Documentary Feature. Jacksonville, Florida, May 2000. Mary Ann Stephens is shot in the head at point blank range in front of her husband. Two hours later, Brenton Butler, a 15 year old black male, is arrested walking down a nearby street. Mr. Stephens identifies him. Butler signs a confession. Everyone involved with the case, from investigators to journalists, is ready to condemn Butler, except his lawyer, Patrick McGuiness. In a dramatic and absolutely spine-tingling sequence of events, McGuiness and his team reopen the inquiry, and together discover a slew of shocking and troubling elements about the case. Did Brenton write his own confession? Where is the concrete evidence? And most importantly, can the police be lying?
