The Penalty


The human cost of the death penalty in America comes in for a timely, gripping examination in The Penalty, the vital new documentary from British filmmakers Will Francome & Mark Pizzey (One for Ten). Embedding themselves in the stories of three fascinating people affected by the American capital punishment system, the filmmakers follow the stories of a man wrongly convicted, who spent 15 years on death row; a lawyer fighting against increasingly inhumane, botched executions; and a mother battling against the state’s pursuit of the death penalty for her daughter’s murderer.
