Synopsis: The main character of our documentary is Marcos Mariano, an innocent man who spent 19 years in prison, after being mistaken for a criminal whose name was almost identical to his. He lost his freedom, his family and his sight in prison. Twelve years after being set free, he finally won part of the US$ 3 million compensation owed by the State. This is the story of a man in pursuit of his lost dignity and of whatever redemption he can get.
