CORPUS: THE CASE
OF JUSTIN WOLFE
In January 2001, a Virginia jury sentenced 20 year old Justin Michael Wolfe to die for a murder he claims he didn’t commit. After ten years on Virginia’s death row, and despite evidence supporting his statements, Justin continues to fight for his freedom. Through interviews, photographs, and original footage, this feature length documentary examines all facets of the ongoing Wolfe case and explores the tenuous relationship between truth and justice.
