The movie stars Joe Estevez, Todd Bridges, Elias Castillo, Chris Angelo, and a host of other talented actors. In this movie, Frank Parish is an investigative journalist who is known for his gritty reporting and determination to expose corruption no matter the cost. He is drawn to the challenge of interviewing four of the most notorious criminals who are all sitting on death row waiting for their execution. The four inmates include a convicted serial killer (Joe Estevez), a gang member who was sentenced to death for his role in a drive-by shooting (Todd Bridges), a former Black Panther activist who was charged with murder (Elias Castillo), and a man who was wrongfully convicted of murder (Chris Angelo).

As the countdown to the execution dates of these inmates approaches, Frank Parish embarks on a journey to learn more about these men and their crimes. Each of the inmates has their own unique story, and Frank is determined to uncover the truth behind their actions. He begins by interviewing their families, lawyers, and prison officials. However, as he delves deeper into their lives, he realizes that things are not always as straightforward as they seem.

The conversations that take place between the journalist and the inmates, their families, and their lawyers form the backbone of the movie. The powerful performances of the actors bring to life the stories of these men who are all facing death for their past actions. As Frank Parish spends more time with the inmates, he begins to develop a sense of empathy for them. He realizes that despite their heinous crimes, they are all human beings who have had their share of struggles in life.

Throughout the movie, tensions run high as the execution dates draw closer. Frank Parish is torn between his journalistic duties and his growing sense of compassion for the inmates, particularly the man who he believes is innocent of the crime he was convicted of. The movie builds up to a climactic ending that leaves the audience on the edge of their seats.
