Here is the plot description for “The Next Three Days”:

Life seems perfect for John Brennan until his wife, Lara, is arrested for a murder she says she didn’t commit. Three years into her sentence, John is struggling to hold his family together. He’s raising their son and teaching at college while he pursues every means available to prove her innocence.

With the rejection of their final appeal, Lara becomes suicidal and John decides there is only one possible, bearable solution: to break his wife out of prison. Refusing to be deterred by impossible odds or his own inexperience, John devises an elaborate escape plot and plunges into a dangerous and unfamiliar world. He ultimately risks everything for the woman he loves.

Most courageous thing???

Definitely not considered breaking them out of jail. Maybe lied to an authority figure to get them out of trouble?…

Spoke up for my sister who had a brain injury. The hospital wanted to pull the plug or I should say convince the family to okay it because they clamed she would not live past a week. That was two years ago.

The Next Three Days

There was a fire in my high rise condo building and took the woman with her baby who were stuck in the hallway full of smoke into my unit while i ran to the stairwell to check for smoke several times (both stairways were fully consumed in black smoke the first time i checked but we got out the second time after the firefighters arrived). True story!
