In 1977, when Kerry Max Cook was just 21 years old, he was tried, convicted and sentenced to death for the rape and murder of a young woman he had met casually at a pool a few days before her death. He spent 22 years in prison, most of that time on death row. "Chasing Justice" is nothing less than a raw condemnation of the American criminal justice system and capital punishment by a person who has experienced the worst effects of its corruption. It is sure to spark debate on this controversial topic and garner enormous media attention. This is also a story of triumph over adversity and a survival tale: almost 1,000 people were executed in the time Cook spent on death row.
