In the spring of 1931 nine black men were arrested for allegedly raping two young white women. Their age's ranged from twelve to twenty years and the men were quickly tried and sentenced to the electric chair. News of the Scottsboro convictions fueled the fire of socialism worldwide, forcing an appeal to the United States Supreme Court, resulting in new trials for all nine defendants.Samuel Leibowitz (Timothy Hutton), a New York lawyer with an impressive string of courtroom victories, agreed to represent the accused at their retrials in Decatur, Alabama. His journey into the Deep South symbolised the polarity of the times and set in motion a legal battle that ultimately changed the course of American jurisprudence. This chapter of American history is a story of an epic injustice. From their arrest in 1931 to the release of the last defendant in 1950, their rights were cruelly violated. “Heavens Fall” shines a light on the cultural and political differences that divide us all.
