Follow the last day of a condemned man in a Missouri prison in this powerful, first-person portrait of capital punishment.
Award winning producer Jim Thebault of The Iceman Tapespresents a gripping, first-person look at capital punishment. Follow several inmates in a Missouri prison through their last day, and learn their stories as they reflect on their crimes, lives and fate. Witness their tearful final encounters with friends and family, the desperate last-minute appeals and the long walk to the killing chamber.
From inside the prison walls, and in the real stories of real men whose punishment can never be amended, this program uniquely captures a troubling issue from a different viewpoint. In the stories of the condemned, in the vigils of those outside the gates--both condemning and applauding the punishment--and in the words of the officials charged with carrying out the ultimate sentence, EXECUTION AT MIDNIGHT is unforgettable.
