Murder to Mercy is an upcoming documentary series directed and produced by Daniel H Birman, who previously released another film about Brown in 2011, Me Facing Life: Cyntoia’s Story. After 16-year-old Cyntoia Brown is sentenced to life in prison, questions about her past, physiology and the law itself call her guilt into question. That’s what Murder to Mercy talks about. In 2017, the hashtag #FreeCyntoiaBrown went viral after Rihanna tweeted the sentiment about Brown, who was sentenced to life in prison nearly 16 years before for murder.

Back in 2006, Brown was convicted of killing a 43-year-old real estate agent, Johnny Allen, who solicited the then-16-year-old sex worker at a Nashville Sonic restaurant in 2004. On April 29th, Netflix will tell Brown’s story with Murder to Mercy: The Cyntoia Brown Story. Now check out the trailer”
