By way of 9 vignettes, Israeli director Hagar Ben Ashar traces the final days of 9 women on death row in the United States. These portraits depict the harrowing toll death penalty takes on the prisoners, but also on their families, the guards, prison officials, ministers and counsellors surrounding them. As the narratives begin to unfold, in the darkness of these final moments, humanity comes to light.
