A powerful film, based on the book Dead Man Walking explores both sides of the capital punishment issue. The spiritual counseling given in this film is also worth noting. Sister Helen Prejean, a compassionate New Orleans nun, is the spiritual advisor to Matthew Poncelet, a vicious, angry and complex murderer awaiting execution. Her dedication is to help others, like Matthew, find salvation. But as she attempts to navigate Matthew's dark soul, she encounters a depth of evil that makes her question how far redemption can really go. Can she stave off the fateful day of execution long enough to save Matthew, or will she discover a truth that will rock the very foundation by which she lives her life?
