An urgent plea for the people of Missouri to halt the execution of a prison inmate accused of murder, director John McHale's grassroots political film presents compelling evidence to suggest that inmate Joe Amrine was not the man responsible for the murder for which he is set to be executed. As the case moves forward and Amrine moves ever closer to death row, a startling lack of evidence and witnesses overshadow the state attorney general's request that the Missouri Supreme Court assign an execution date.
