NARRATED BY HUGH ROSS
WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY MARCUS MCKENZIE & DANIEL PRINCIPE
Capital punishment simmers in a boiling pot of controversy. Amidst the political and religious debate surrounding the issue one thing sets tongues wagging more than the others - what do the condemned eat before their execution?
LAST MEAL presents a banquet of death row inmates’ final feasts and through them shines a light on our understanding of the individuals and the institutions meting out capital punishment.
