Summary
  • A reporter is sent to chronicle the last days of an anti-death penalty activist now living on death row, after having been convicted of the murder of a fellow activist. The reporter grows to suspect he may have been framed, and sets out to verify her doubts
  • David Gale era un miembro activo de Deathwatch, un grupo activista en contra de la pena de muerte. Constance era una activista compañera de Deathwatch. Cuando se encuentra a Constance violada y asesinada, Gale es condenado del crimen. Ahora Gale espera la ejecución, y con menos que una semana antes su cita con la inyección fatal, Gale consiente en decir su historia a Bitsy, una periodista presuntuosa de una revista de noticias mayor. Cuando ella discute los hechos del asesinato con Gale, se le ocurre que los detalles simplemente no suman. Pronto un desconocido misterioso empieza a pasarle disimuladamente a ella evidencia que sugiere que a Gale se han tendido una trampa
