An aging mother, despite continuous denial, battles the State of Montana to free her son from prison while discovering their story has inspired historic change.
ALL WE’VE LOST chronicles the inspiring story of Bobbi Clincher, an elderly woman, who for the last 30 years has fought to free her son, Barry Beach, from prison. In 1979, the murder of 17-year-old Kim Nees incited an investigation that yielded dozens of fingerprints, palm prints, footprints, hair and blood. None of it matched Beach, however after hours of interrogation, he confessed. Now 30 years later, despite a lack of physical evidence tying him to the crime scene, his fate rests with the State of Montana. In 2014, after the Board of Pardons and Parole denied Beach, a State Representative introduced House Bill 43. After signed into law, this bipartisan bill gave clemency power to the Governor. This historic piece of Montana legislature would be the final avenue for Beach’s freedom. With the support of thousands of people, Bobbi pressured the Capital for action and in November 2015, Beach was the first person granted clemency under the new law. Shot over the span of 4 years, ALL WE’VE LOST is a contemporary tale that balances on the scale of truth and justice, bringing our viewers to the edge of their seat for a historic climax and inspiring ending.
