THE ART OF LIVING
It’s 1995. Wrongfully convicted at 17 years old, Michael Alvarez has now spent twelve years on Illinois’s death row for the killing of a Chicago police officer. After receiving inspirational messages from an anonymous Englishman, Salazar’s latent talent for painting is revived. Unbeknownst to Salazer, his paintings would go on to ignite a global freedom campaign for his release reaching the attention of the press and the House of Parliament. In an explosive showpiece trial, defying police corruption and an unscrupulous prosecution who tried everything in their power to have him swiftly executed, a nerve-shredding summation is revealed that restores Salazar’s innocence and secures his freedom.
