In 46 states, you can be convicted of murder without killing anyone. Plea is a short film about a boy named Casper who, at 16, finds himself accused under the Felony Murder law.

When Casper attempted to rob beer from a store, the cashier shot and accidentally killed an innocent bystander. He is charged with murder and could face life in prison. His lawyer, Jill Sanders, can secure a 7 year sentence for Casper, if she can convince him to plead guilty…

We were delighted to provide the theme track for this short film, composed by Jonathan Goldstein and Nick Smith. The film was directed by Joe Oppenheimer.
