However, new DNA evidence clears him and he returns to his hometown Paulie, Georgia, after spending nineteen years of his life in death row.

Rectify was created by Ray McKinnon who was well known as an actor in such films as Apollo 13, The Net, The Pretender, and Dead Man's Walk. His more recent work includes being the director of Randy and The Mob, and I Hate To See That Evening Sun Go Down.

During the initial plotline, Daniel holden is met by his lawyer John Sterm, mother Janet, sister Amantha, stepfather Ted, and stepbrotehr Ted Jr. Daniel leaves a Georgia prison after spending nineteen years on death row incarcerated for a crime he wasn't fully responsible for. Thanks to new DNA evidence, showing that eighteen year old Daniel was not solely responsible for the rape and murder of his sixteen year old girlfriend Hanna that has been alleged during his trial. The Senator Roland Foulkes tells Daniel that he has not been exonerated and that he will still be pursued by the law. From there on the storyline twists and turns into something a touch twisted, and almost surreal, but definitely in the realm of possibility.
