Gregory Marquette’s documentary about telecoms inventor Walter L Shaw reveals how the scientist’s poor treatment at the hands of the major companies drive him to work for the Mob and led his son into a life of crime.

Walter T Shaw produced and Frank Langella narrated the story. Freestyle Releasing co-president Mark Borde negotiated the deal with Shaw.

“Phones are the center of most of our universes today,” Borde said. “I was amazed to learn about Walter Shaw and am honoured to be able to help have his voice finally be heard.”
