Summary:
A striking three part series telling the story of capital punishment through the eyes of the young people whose lives have been shaped by it. Going inside prison walls and meeting America's youngest Death Row inmates, the series discovers what it's like to live with the threat of the death chamber. Following their trials, appeals and ultimately their executions, the films also meet the people the headlines generally ignore: the young siblings, sons and daughters of victims and defendants alike, each forced to confront death on an agonising journey through the capital punishment system. Each film in the trilogy focuses on a key aspect of the system: Execution, Trial and Crime. These are not just stories packed full of unfolding drama, jeopardy and intense emotion, but real life tales that provoke fundamental questions about justice, the right to life and the right to kill.
