In a picturesque farm community, two couples must grapple with their emotions on the eve of an execution. The parents of the victim, a gay man in his early 20s, reluctantly drive to the prison, hoping for closure in seeing the killer brought to justice. At the same time, the parents of the killer sit helplessly in their dimly lit kitchen as their son is executed. Presenting a heartbreaking portrait of guilt and poisoned love, the parents cling to each other, blame each other, and mourn their son’s tormented life. Though the film grapples with a politically charged crime, after the layers of the story are slowly peeled away, what is left are issues of family and the importance of support in the home. -LA
