"Stand your ground" laws afford people legal protection in the case of self-defense. However, they can also lead to controversy - when is killing not a murder? Jackie Carpenter's family was thrown into this question years ago when her son was accused of murder, and is the subject of the movie based on her experiences, Stand Your Ground.
The movie is based on Jackie's original writings about the experience, The Bridge: Between Cell Block A and a Miracle is Psalm 91 and Georgia Justice: Journey to Faith. A novelization is also in the works. The movie looks at the events that occurred, as well as Jackie's struggle with faith through the whole experience. I had a chance to interview her to learn more.
