Storyline

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

off-putting lead character
14 April 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Filmmaker Lauren Wilde (Paget Brewster) and her cameraman is doing a documentary about death row inmates. They travel to Hillsdale, Oregon to film Kevin Reese scheduled to die in a month. She's pushing an agenda and most of the locals are not buying. Kevin was convicted of massacring the Watson family. He was having an affair with the wife Amanda Watson but doesn't remember the murders. Detective Tom Redler is reluctantly assigned as Lauren's liaison with his partner Charlie Quinn. Police forensics Patty Sutton helps out. She starts to believe in Kevin's innocence especially after Redler loses the case file.

Lauren Wilde is too stridden at the beginning. She's very off-putting and no interviewer would push that hard with any expectation of usable footage. The flashbacks are mostly boring and the acting is generally second rate. There isn't much to recommend in this TV movie.
