After a botched home invasion, 15-year-old Blake and his friends find themselves facing a virtual life prison sentence for Felony Murder. We focus on the youngest of the group, Blake and his family, as they fight to reduce his 55-year sentence over a period of 4 years. 1275 Days is a 'David and Goliath' tale that not only explores the complicated issues surrounding juvenile incarceration in America, but exposes the financial and emotional burden families of the incarcerated face.
Shot over 4 years since the original sentencing in 2013, this film paints a vivid picture of being young incarcerated and grieving, while facing an extreme sentence. This film is Executive Produced by FilmRise and was one of five films awarded a fellowship in the 2015 Points North Pitching Forum.
