Summary Shot inside a state-of-the art maximum security prison in southeastern Missouri, the film delves into a world never before seen on film. All of Potosi Correctional Center's inmates face either death or are incarcerated for life without parole. No one leaves the prison, except in a hearse. Missouri has chosen lethal injection as the means of carrying out executions. In Potosi, executions are conducted in the prison hospital, using a lethal injection machine. The protocol is devised so that the burden of responsibility spreads across a number of individuals. The executioners speak openly about their role and the condemned men reflect on their lives. We see precisely what happens when the state takes a life. Member of a series: Eye for Justice (Series).
