Gideon’s Army

Everyone deserves the best defense. They fight for it.

Three young, idealistic public defenders in the Deep South struggle against long hours, low pay and staggering caseloads to ensure justice is served for the people society would rather forget. 


"'Gideon's Army' is a bare film with no narrator and a minimal soundtrack. That's all it needs to grab you by the throat."
