    Synopsis

    This drama is based on a true story, which explores the issue of capital punishment. Sister Helen Prejean is a nun and teacher living in rural Louisiana. One day, she receives a letter from Matthew Poncelet, who is scheduled to be executed soon for the rape and murder of two teenagers. After meeting Matthew, Sister Helen agrees to serve as spiritual counselor and see what she can do to stay the execution. However, Matthew's claims of innocence seem shaky at best, and it's clear he's a reprehensible, amoral racist. When it becomes obvious that Matthew's sentence will be carried out, Sister Helen offers what comfort she can to Matthew, but also tries to guide him to an open admission of the extent of his crimes and an acceptance of divine forgiveness, telling him I want the last face you see to be the face of love.
