FIGHT FOR JUSTICE: DAVID & ME
David McCallum is a convicted murderer from the mean streets of Brooklyn who has spent 29-years in prison. Ray Klonsky is a middle class, Jewish-Italian kid from Toronto. When fate crossed their paths however, a friendship was born that changed both of their lives forever. David & Me is the story of their friendship and the fight for David’s freedom, as Klonsky joins a dedicated team of lawyers and activists who are looking into David’s case and searching for new evidence that will exonerate him. The unlikely bond between David and Ray turns this gut-wrenching wrongful conviction story into a transformative film about going the distance for what you believe.
Directed by Ray Klonsky & Marc Lamy, Produced by Markham Street Films.
