Netflix Doc 'Murder to Mercy: The Cyntoia Brown Story' Official Trailer
"Time and proximity can change adversaries into allies." Netflix has released an official trailer for a true crime documentary film titled Murder to Mercy: The Cyntoia Brown Story, made by doc filmmaker Daniel H. Birman. The film examines in detail the story of Cyntoia Brown, a young woman from Kentucky who grew up in a foster home. She was convicted of murdering a man at age 16 during her time working as a forced prostitute, and sentenced to life in prison as an adult. Years later her case was re-examined after a public outcry, she was eventually granted clemency, and was released from prison in 2019. The film takes a look at her entire story - what happened with her initial conviction and how she ended up finally getting out.
