Summary, etc.:
Ishmael Muslim Ali was convicted of murdering eight people at a golf course in the U.S. Virgin Islands. After years of trying to get his conviction overturned, he took matters into his own hands and hijacked an airplane full of messengers to Cuba on New Year's Eve in 1984 and got away with it. It captures Ali's first interview since the hijacking and includes never before seen footage. Is he a heartless criminal or a victim? The audience must decide.
