Went to Good Pitch


Crime After Crime is the exclusive documentary film on the dramatic legal battle to free Debbie Peagler, a woman imprisoned for over a quarter century due to her connection to the murder of the man who abused her. Despite suffering many injustices and abuses, Debbie is an inspiration, leading the prison choir and teaching other inmates to read and write. She finds her only hope for freedom when two rookie attorneys with no background in criminal law step forward to take her case. Through their perseverance, they bring to light long-lost witnesses, new testimonies from the men who committed the murder, and a trail of corruption snaking through the entire criminal justice system. Filming in and out of prison for over five years, filmmaker Yoav Potash methodically documented this story as it unfolded, bringing to the screen an unforgettable story of a relentless quest for justice.
