Life Without portrays a system of justice more intent upon securing convictions than fully examining available evidence. Tricked into confessing and saddled with an incompetent attorney, Joel Ascher is wrongly convicted in the stabbing murder of his pregnant wife, Marsha. He is imprisoned for life without the possibility of parole. His situation is hopeless – he even loses the support of his parents – but he can never quite let go of hope. Life Without reflects Ken Klonsky’s years of first-hand experience with the wrongly convicted and exposes elements of comic absurdity within the justice system.
