Abby Epstein corresponded with me during my prosecution and her pregnancy. We were hoping to be a part of this film, but she went into labor early, around the time they were planning to come to Indiana. Abby was a wonderfully supportive, and it was amazing to correspond with her and talk to her on the phone, and to be involved, if only vicariously, in their production.
