Award-winning documentary filmmaker Lauren Wilde makes another on criminals on death-row and the effects of their executions on local communities. In Hillsdale, car mechanic and graphic artist Kevin Reese, with a mild substance abuse problem, is one of 2 on 30 Oregon convicts actually about to get the lethal injection. The community refuses to cooperate, detective in charge and governor-appointed liaison Tom Redler even 'lost the file'. Kevin's employer and roommate are the first of a series of witnesses who make Lauren believe he's innocent and framed. Forensic expert Patty Sutton and his own deputy make her believe Redler is the killer, who will stop at nothing to hide the truth. Written by KGF Vissers

***SPOILERS*** Heavily contrived race against the clock in the of coming execution of local Hillsdale grease monkey and drug addict as well as aspiring artist Kevin Reese, Antonio Cupo. Kevin had been convicted of murdering the entire Watson family including his lover the sexy and cheating on her husband Noel, Ken Camroux-Taylor, Amanda played by Ona Grauer.

With only a month away from his execution date Kevin is visited on Oregon's death-row by film maker Lauren Wilde, Paget Brewster. Lauren together with her cameraman Mark Evens, Doron Bell, are making a documentary about the pros and cons of capital punishment. With Kevin about to meet his maker, via lethal injection, Lauren feels that he's by far the perfect candidate on the subject. As Lauren start to interview Kevin she soon realizes that he's been set up and framed for the Watson murders in the fact that he's too kind and sensitive, especially in his artistic pursuits, to have murdered anyone.

What also convinces Lauren of Kevin's innocence is what she was told by the towns medical, or forensic, examiner Gayle Lerner, Meg Roe, in how the evidence doesn't connect him to the murders! Gayle not only feels that the victim's blood found on Kevin was planted on him by the Watson's real killer but that killer may well be Hillsdale Det. Tom Redler, Robert Wisden. As it turned out, according to Gayle, Redler was having a secret affair with the murdered Amanda Watson, who later dropped for the younger and far more sensitive Kevin Reese, and threatened to kill her and he entire family if she ever left him.

As Lauren gets closer to the truth the time was starting to tick away for Kevin and in desperation the Watson's killer, obviously not Kevin Reese, started to tie up any loose ends that can lead the police to him. He did this by knocking off both cameraman Mark Evens whom he mistook for Lauren, by him driving her SUV, and Reese's attorney of record shyster lawyer Jerry McAffery,Bruno Verdoni.

As it turned out Lauren, with Gayle helping her along the way, did uncover a deep and shocking secret in who murdered the Watson family. But would she have enough time to stop Kevin's execution with the Walton killer knowing every move that she makes in setting Lauren up to be murdered herself! That's before Lauran can both expose the killer and thus prevent Kevin from being put to sleep, with the needle, forever!
