HBO has released the official trailer for its original documentary, “40 Years A Prisoner.”

The documentary follows the story of a son, Michael Africa Jr., who commits his life to fighting for the release of his parents, two members of the Philadelphia Black radical group MOVE, imprisoned after a controversial confrontation with police. 

40 Years A Prisoner” is a Tommy Oliver film and features original music from The Roots
