Inspired by an actual prison execution in 1998 of a woman (Karla Faye Tucker) who killed 2 people and accepted her fate but had an innocence about her.
Begins in a southern town circa 1990 and involves a struggling young couple with a baby girl. The father leaves to start a new life somewhere else leaving mother and child behind. Many years later he becomes the warden of a prison. A capital punishment is scheduled to take place. He’s aware it’s a young woman and visits her for the first and last time. Hence, in the chamber, he orders the execution and it’s done. Something about this woman brings back memories/flashbacks that this young woman might be his daughter. 12:05am kills self.
