Over twenty years ago, LESRA MARTIN was trapped in the harrowing, violent streets of Bushwick. Illiterate and poor, he lived a life of little hope or promise.

A simple subway ride changed his life -- and others -- forever. Through a series of incredible circumstances, he became the unlikely catalyst in the freeing of one of the U.S.'s most famous wrongly convicted prisoners.

Along the way, he fought to change his own life, undergoing his own miraculous transformation into a university honour student, law school graduate, attorney, and inspirational speaker.
