"Riveting. Structured like a taut thriller, Better This World delivers a chilling depiction of loyalty, naivete, political zealotry and the post-9/11 security state...and it features one doozy of a kicker in the 'where are they are now' category."
Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post

"Powerful...Makes us wonder about the ways the American justice system works...Truly chilling.."
