Sam leaps into the body of Jesus Ortega, a death row prisoner who is about to be executed. A last minute stay of execution gives Sam 48 hours to prove that Ortega is innocent. With the secret assistance of an Assistant District Attorney, Margerita Lorrea Tearsa, who thinks he's innocent, he's submitted an appeal to Governor. All of this doesn't sit well with Theodore Moody, the DA who convicted him who is also now a candidate for Governor. Ortega was convicted of robbing a church and killing a priest but he and his accomplices deny having anything to do with the killing. Unless Sam can figure it out, not only will Ortega die in the electric chair but Tearsa will be disbarred. The key is that there is someone else Sam is supposed to save. Written by

Are you going to... dance before your execution, Jesus? Oh... It's an old prison saying. That a man on his final walk to the chair - the stench of fear chokes him, and he panics, struggling in the arms of his captor for one moment of freedom. Some people say it looks like a dance - the last dance before death. A little manic, don't you think?
