What happens when what is reported as fact obscures the truth?
“There is a bomb in Centennial Park. You have thirty minutes.” The world is first introduced to Richard Jewell as the security guard who reports finding the device at the 1996 Atlanta bombing—his report making him a hero whose swift actions save countless lives. But, within days, the law enforcement wannabe becomes the FBI’s number one suspect, vilified by press and public alike, his life ripped apart.
Reaching out to independent, anti-establishment attorney Watson Bryant, Jewell staunchly professes his innocence. Bryant finds he’s out of his depth as he fights the combined powers of the FBI, GBI, and APD to clear his client’s name, while keeping Jewell from trusting the very people trying to destroy him.
