Exposing Parchman explores the ongoing efforts to reform the Mississippi correctional system, led by a team of attorneys on behalf of Parchman Prison's incarcerated population..

Parchman began to make national headlines in December 2019 for its inhumane prison conditions that resulted in massive deaths of incarcerated individuals by homicide, hanging, and untreated illness. In a cry for help, brave and desperate inmates shared prohibited cell phone footage from inside. Team ROC (Roc Nation's social justice and philanthropic arm), Shawn "JAY-Z" Carter, multiplatinum musician and entrepreneur Mario "Yo Gotti" Mims, and a group of lawyers stepped in to procure legal representation on behalf of 200+ incarcerated men against the Mississippi Department of Corrections. They went on to file multiple lawsuits that prompted the U.S. Justice Department to launch an investigation and found that the Mississippi facility violated the Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

The documentary unpacks Parchman's disgraceful history, includes interviews with families with loved ones suffering in the decaying prison, and delivers a never-before-seen look at the inside of the notorious facility. Additionally, it examines how the legal team worked closely with Team ROC across three years of legal battles to end the deadly conditions for those incarcerated at Parchman once and for all.
