Book description
Matthew Poncelet (Sean Penn) is the convicted killer of two teenage lovers, preparing to end his life on death row. In response to a letter, Sister Helen Prejean (Susan Sarandon) visits Matthew and finds herself face-to-face with a killer who still pleads his innocence. When the date is set for his execution-death by lethal injection-Poncelet asks Sister Helen to be his spiritual advisor and she agrees, little knowing the outrage that will follow her decision. But the journey they will undertake in search of the truth, is as powerful and profound as you are ever likely to witness on screen.
