Why are there no happy families in Hollywood?

Despite evidence of police corruption, a confession given under duress (César’s parents were taken into custody and threatened with torture), and the prosecuting attorney’s statement that he would not have proceeded with the trial had these details been revealed, César’s conviction has yet to be overturned.

One of the most painful effects of César’s incarceration was the separation from his younger brother, Sergio, whose life derailed the day César was imprisoned, and who now wanders homeless in Ciudad Juárez. The Years of Fierro poignantly tells both brothers’ stories, demonstrating how this miscarriage of justice resonates beyond one wrongfully imprisoned man.
