The two-hour documentary by Kim Kardashian West, titled The Justice Project, is described as the reality star's "crusade to shed light on the criminal justice system".

Landing on hayu today, the one-off film will see the 39-year-old attempt to right injustices within the American judicial system, exploring themes on wrongful and unfair convictions - similar to the basis of hit docuseries Making a Murderer.

Kim - who is currently studying to become a criminal justice lawyer - began her flight in 2018, when she convinced the White House to grant Alice Marie Johnson, a great-grandmother and first time non-violent offender serving a life in prison, clemency.

The documentary sees Kim explore cases of people she believed have been wronged by the criminal justice system, following their stories and circumstances that have led them to being locked up.

One of these is Alexis Martin, who was given life in prison for killing the man she alleged sex trafficked her, after being arrested at 15.

"I partnered with Oxygen to do the 'Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project' documentary because there are millions of people impacted by this broken justice system, and I wanted to put faces to these numbers and statistics," said Kim, who also acts as executive producer.

"There are a lot of people who deserve a second chance, but many do not have the resources to make it happen. I want to help elevate these cases to a national level to effect change, and this documentary is an honest depiction of me learning about the system and helping bring tangible results to justice reform."
