83 Days is the story of the youngest person in US history to be put to death by electric chair. In 1944, in the segregated southern town of Acolu, SC, a 14 year old negro boy George Stinney Jr. fights for his life after being wrongly accused of the murder of 2 young white girls. What happens when the moral compass of the law is tainted by political pressure and racism and when those in power struggle to challenge it? How long will it take for the truth to be told?
