Brown was arrested at 16 years old and charged as an adult after killing the 43-year-old man who solicited her for sex. After serving ten years of her life sentence she was finally granted clemency.
The documentary will detail every aspect leading up the murder as well as Cyntoia’s release from prison set to take place in August 2019.

“I am thankful for all the support, prayers, and encouragement I have received,” Cyntonia said in an official statement after her clemency was announced. “I am thankful to my lawyers and their staffs, and all the others who, for the last decade have freely given their time and expertise to help me get to this day. I love all of you and will be forever grateful. With God’s help, I am committed to live the rest of my life helping others, especially young people. My hope is to help other young girls avoid ending up where I have been.”
