SYNOPSIS

At nightfall, on the outskirts of Salt Lake City, surrounded by his family, a grandmother will attend the execution of her husband's murderer.

​

In Oklahoma, a former death row inmate exonerated after 22 years in prison tells his amazing story. In Texas, a woman struggles against the criminal justice system for his son to survive, while he is awaiting his execution for 14 years. In Huntsville, a small provincial town in eastern Texas, the Department of correction performs the executions by lethal injection almost as a weekly ritual.

​

Based on the numerous absurdities of the death penalty, the film shows through these three characters how this death sentence generates pain, unfairness, violence and inefficiency in the heart of the American society.
