The emotional journey of  16 undergraduate students at Georgetown University in a ground breaking course:  Making an Exoneree  the students become citizen sleuths as they re-investigate five potential wrongful conviction cases over the course of a semester in the hopes of getting someone exonerated.  Led by Georgetown professor  Marc Howard and NYS exoneree Marty Tankleff, the students embark on this life changing course driven by determination and  passion to help four men who have lost all hope.  Within five months, these students morph into social justice warriors, find new evidence, pressure district attorneys, prosecutors, defense attorneys  and  rattle the criminal justice system. Their efforts pay off when they find new evidence that helps free an innocent man who spent 27 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit.
