- Physical description
- 1 videocassette (89 min.) : sd., col. ; 1/2 in.
- Chronicles the decade-long trials and traumas incurred by a gay Michigan man, Stephen Matthews and his straight father, Melvin Matthews, who were wrongfully accused by Stephen's ex-girlfriend and her husband of molesting Stephen's son. Despite the fact that there was no physical evidence, both Stephen and Melvin Matthews were sentenced to 35 years in jail. The story is one of justice miscarried in a society of legal labyrinths, where science is easily confused about fact, and sexual orientation can provoke prosecutorial vendettas based upon long-held biases.
