About the Event

At nightfall, on the outskirts of Salt Lake City, surrounded by his family, a grandmother attends the execution of her husband’s murderer. In Oklahoma, a former death row inmate exonerated after 22 years in prison tells his life-changing story. In Texas, a woman struggles against the criminal justice system for her son’s survival, while he has been waiting 14 years for his execution. In Huntsville, a small provincial town in Eastern Texas, the Department of Correction performs 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 the death sentence generates pain, unfairness, violence and inefficiency in the heart of the American society.(62 minutes)
