And though her goal has seemed hopeless, Myrlie Evers (Academy Award winner Goldberg--Ghost, The Color Purple) remains undaunted in her decades-long quest for a murder conviction againstByron De La Beck with (James Woods--Casino, Nixon), her husband's killer.Together, Evers and DeLaughter beat the odds and rewrite history.
