Beyond the Boardwalk - A Documentary
Beyond the Boardwalk, directed by former News 12 reporter Matt Jablow, is the story of a violent crime and the improbable friendship it forged. The documentary starts in 1991 when Jermaine Ewell was beaten into a coma on the Atlantic Beach boardwalk. One year later, Shannon Siegel was convicted and sentenced to 21 years in prison. From there, the story veers from a horrifying attack to an inspiring journey of forgiveness and brotherhood.
