Why does the United States rank with China, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Vietnam in executions? Support for 'death' centers in the former slave states, and 'who must die' is not a question of justice, but of politics. Discover how a rebel pubic defender from Boulder, Colorado threw a monkey wrench into America's 'death machine'. Slip into a juror's seat as David Wymore and other nationally recognized criminal defense attorneys bring their fight against the death penalty to the front line: the courtroom. Casting a revelatory and often uncomfortable light on the US justice system, The Life Penalty shakes the ethical and moral foundations of capital punishment. Featuring two Bob Dylan songs, including the never before released 'Ballad of Donald White'.
