IMDb summary: “The Amendment is the true and inspiring story of finding triumph over tragedy, injustice and loss. In 1979, Brooks Douglass and his sister Leslie survived a devastating crime that rocked their community and took their parents’ lives. Initially sent into an emotional tailspin Brooks regained his footing, became Oklahoma’s youngest state senator and championed important victim’s rights legislation. It is not until his question for ultimate justice brings him face-to-face with his parents’ killer that he must reconcile military training with the lessons of his father to discover the path to finally finding peace.”
