Lucy Morrow (Ellen Page) and her sister Martha (Amy Seimetz) regularly attend demonstrations to have the death penalty abolished. Their father, Simon (Elias Koteas), has been convicted of murder and is currently on death row.

At a protest, Lucy meets Mercy (Kate Mara), who's protesting for the opposite side. As the daughter of a police officer whose partner was killed by a man about to receive a lethal injection, she believes the death penalty is justice rightly served. However, the two women see through their differences and fall deeply in love.

  • 5 stars "Page plays the daughter of a man on death row (Elias Koteas), and her character falls in love with a woman (Mara) who comes from a vastly different background and who is on the opposite side of the debate over the death penalty. Great Point Media is handling international sales."
