PBS National Broadcast—In 1970s San Francisco, 20-year-old Korean immigrant Chol Soo Lee is racially profiled and convicted of a Chinatown gang murder. After spending years fighting to survive, investigative journalist K.W. Lee takes a special interest in his case, igniting an unprecedented social justice movement.

Nearly five decades later, FREE CHOL SOO LEE excavates this largely unknown yet essential history to craft a portrait of the complex man at its center and provide an urgent reminder that his legacy is more relevant than ever.

Tune into your PBS station on April 24, 2023 to see the premiere of FREE CHOL SOO LEE or watch the stream online through May 24. Check your local PBS station for times and more information.
