Life and Death Row

Synopsis
Life and Death Row is a striking three part series telling the story of capital punishment through the eyes of the young people whose lives have been shaped by it. Going inside prison walls and meeting America’s youngest Death Row inmates, the series discovers what it’s like to live with the threat of the death chamber.

Following their trials, appeals and ultimately their executions, the films in Life and Death Row meets the people the headlines generally ignore: the young siblings, sons and daughters of victims and defendants alike, each forced to confront death on an agonising journey through the capital punishment system
