Storyline

Awaiting execution, Denver Bayliss gains an unlikely friend and confidant in Fred Whitmore, a former cop who is now a prison guard. Whitmore's life is a mess, however: he shuts out his wife and can't relate to his son. As Bayliss' execution draws nearer, Whitmore clashes more and more with Lt. McMannis, his supervisor, over Bayliss' treatment. Bayliss gives Whitmore a new understanding of life by helping him come to terms with a traumatic past, and Whitmore helps Bayliss to make his peace with himself and the world. Written by Jason A. Cormier <wildrose@mindsping.com>

Death row inmate is befriended by guard.
11 August 1998 | by Simba-5See all my reviews

Keifer Sutherland is a product of the system - foster homes and juvenile halls. He is on death row when a new guard is assigned to him - played by Forrest Whitaker. Forrest has personal problems stemming from a violent upbringing and feels for Keifer. An excellent depiction of a friendship that was hard to build, another solid production for Sutherland (Truth or Consequences).
