Synopsis

Told through nine moving vignettes, „Dead Women Walking” traces the final days of a series of women on death row, from two weeks before one inmate’s execution to mere minutes before another’s. As these narratives develop, the human toll of the death penalty – not only on the women convicted of violent crimes, but also on their families, prison officials, and ministers and counselors coaching them through their final days – comes into clear focus. Hagar Ben-Asher crafts a devastating film with unforgettable moments of compassion and humanity.
