It is about the life of the boxer Rubin "Hurricane" Carter. Pretty good movie it turned out to be as I watched with lot of ad break in TV. Zee Studio has been airing quite a few good movies in the recent past and I guess "Cinderella Man" is the next on the offing. Read more about him at the Wiki
Bob Dylan in fact narrates the complete list of events from Hurricane in his song dedicated to Rubin Carter. Catch the song from Youtube below:
Lyrics excerpts below:
Pistol shots ring out in the barroom night
Enter Patty Valentine from the upper hall.
She sees the bartender in a pool of blood,
Cries out, "My God, they killed them all!"
Here comes the story of the Hurricane,
The man the authorities came to blame
For somethin' that he never done.
Put in a prison cell, but one time he could-a been
The champion of the world.
