Plot Summary
Ben (Ruben Blades) is a violent criminal on death row after a heinous quadruple murder. In prison, Ben's behavior becomes increasingly unstable and deranged, which causes an unusual and difficult problem for the courts, as a mentally ill person cannot be executed. In response, they bring in psychiatrist Dr. Alex Marsh (Danny Glover) to try and stabilize Ben's behavior so his sentence can be carried out. However, this presents a moral dilemma for Dr. Marsh.
