How do you cope with being convicted of a crime you know you did not commit? Since DNA evidence has come into play, approximately 300 people have been released from death row after tests showed they had been wrongfully convicted. Many exonerees are released from their cells without fanfare, apologies or anywhere to go. People Like Us is a lyrical and intensely emotional film; using documented voices of exonerees, interviews, archival footage and experimental drama, to ask: how to square those years of being locked up with being released an exonerated man.
