In September of 1980, a talented, young, African-American reporter named Janet Cooke wrote a Pulitzer Prize-winning article for the Washington Post. Jimmy's World told of an 8-year-old, third-generation heroin addict living on the dangerous streets of Washington. Public outrage pushed many social services organizations to seek out Jimmy and his family. The problem: Jimmy didn’t exist. Based on true events, "The Story" examines morality as the lines between truth and ambition become dangerously distorted.

Price: Free.
