One For Ten is an revolutionary series of campaign films produced and broadcast online over five weeks in April and May of 2013.

During those five weeks, the producers travelled the width of the United States and interviewed ten individuals who have been freed from death row after their false convictions were overturned.

"The case against the death penalty was never more strongly made", was one comment to Just Festival News and Ekklesia.

The One for Ten team are also really looking forward to meeting people in Edinburgh and taking part in Just.
