What Do We Do Now?
27 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The late Patrick Swayze is a murderer. He is on death row, having exhausted his appeals. New to the fraternity of the condemned, he falls in with a jailbreak. In the process, he has a bolt of electricity surge through his body. This leads to unforeseen consequences. He has been given the power of healing. He saves a fellow prisoner who has life ending injuries. The bullet holes literally disappear. He eliminates the pain of arthritis from an elderly prisoner. He even stops a cancer killing the little daughter of the Warden, who is a harsh proponent of capital punishment. Sadly or rightly for him, this changes nothing concerning his sentence, and he is led to the electric chair. This bring up an interesting situation ethic question. Is the death penalty absolute. If a person can save lives, even though justice says he must pay, what is the answer? This is a really gripping episode and Swayze is the perfect fit.
