Synopsis by Phil Griffin

Bernadine Williams (Alfre Woodard) is a prison warden made tough and unfeeling by the numerous deaths she has witnessed throughout her long career. Her strong facade, however, begins to crumble after her 12th execution goes awry and after she meets Anthony Woods (Aldis Hodge), the criminal who is next in line. As her connection with Anthony deepens, Bernadine finds herself being confronted by the demons inside her that are created by her job and the humanity she is trying so hard to suppress. Written and directed by Chinonye Chukwu.
