An Unreal Dream: Michael Morton Story (Original Soundtrack)
Original soundtrack to the 2013 documentary. The soundtrack was produced by Chuck Pinnell and Richard Brotherton and features Americana artists including Jimmy LaFave, Tina Wilkins, Richard Brotherton, Chuck Pinnell, Jerry Jeff Walker, Robert Earl Keen, Slaid Cleaves and Eliza Gilkyson. In 1986 Michael Morton's wife Christine is brutally murdered in front of their only child, and Michael is convicted of the crime. Locked away in Texas prisons for a quarter century, he has years to ponder questions of justice and innocence, truth and fate. Though he is virtually invisible to society, a team of dedicated attorneys spends years fighting for the right to test DNA evidence found at the murder scene. Their discoveries ultimately reveal that the price of a wrongful conviction goes well beyond one man's loss of freedom.
