SEGMENT 1: As dramatized in a Bob Dylan song and 'The Hurricane' starring Denzel Washington, ex-prize fighter Rubin Carter tells how he was wrongly convicted of a triple homicide and ultimately exonerated by a federal judge, and trained his mind in prison to transcend hatred.

SEGMENT 2: After a court declared his murder conviction a miscarriage of justice, Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter has been a tireless advocate for other wrongly-convicted inmates who face an uphill battle behind bars, in a nation that imprisons more people than any other.
