Early on the morning of April 18th, 2006 Howell Woltz, A successful trust and estate practitioner, finds himself handcuffed and arrested by the FBI on charges he had never heard of. In 2013, I produced this 15 minute documentary along side my colleague and friend, Cody Joel, who also directed the project. Howell, whom the documentary centralizes, has since been released from prison and has written several books, given TED talks, school lectures, and been an activist in judicial reform. Our documentary won best doc from our university and went out to travel multiple film circuits, as well as making it to Student Emmy Finalist.
