“John Henry Brown is a most fascinating and complicated hero- from playing rock and roll and opening for Hendrix, his story takes us from reforming the prison system to defending angels and devils against the death penalty and justice system. At the same time he is battling his own demons that rage day and night, and instead of taking him down, they empower him to take even greater risks, and battle the most confounding legal cases of our time. His humanity and his collision with the powers that be make this giant of a man both relatable and mind-bogglingly beguiling,” said Polakoff.
