Movie Summary

Director:
Unknown
Released:
1998
Rating:
R
Blind Faith takes place in the racially tense year of 1957 when Charles Williams (Charles S. Dutton) is given the impossible task of serving as New York City's first African-American police sergeant. Wanting his legacy carried on, Charles is pressuring his son, Charlie (Garland Whitt), to pursue a career in law enforcement as well. Everything changes when Charles receives a message that his son has confessed to killing a young, white man. While bigoted bias is mounting, Charlie is on a fast track to the electric chair. With little time to spare, Charlie's uncle, John Williams (Courtney B. Vance), takes on one of his first cases as a young black attorney: saving his own nephew from certain execution. John quickly suspects that Charlie's "confession" was literally beaten out of him by corrupt cops. In an uphill battle against time, racism and a slanted justice system, John will fight with everything he has to prove him innocent.
