Crime After Crime
Directed by Yoav Potash
CRIME AFTER CRIME tells the dramatic story of Debbie Peagler, a woman imprisoned for over a quarter century due to her connection to the murder of the man who abused her. Two decades after she was first incarcerated, two rookie attorneys with no background in criminal law step forward to take her case, and Peagler begins to hope that she may enjoy freedom again.
Filming in and out of prison for over five years, with exclusive access to Peagler and her attorneys, Yoav Potash powerfully documents a story of a relentless quest for justice.
