Soundtrack - An Unreal Dream (Michael Morton Story)

by Various Artists

  • In the Pines
  • Take This Hammer

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.

The Album is produced by Chuck Pinnell and Richard Brotherton. The soundtrack features the top Americana artists including Jimmy LaFave, Tina Wilkins, Richard Brotherton, Chuck Pinnell, Jerry Jeff Walker, Robert Earl Keen, Slaid Cleaves & Eliza Gilkyson.

The film won the Documentary Spotlight Audience award at SXSW 2013, Best Documentary award at Victoria TX Independent Film Festival 2013 and Official Selection Human Rights Watch Film Festival 2013 award. n 1986 Michael Morton’s wife Christine is brutally murdered in front of their only child, and Michael is convicted of the crime.
