When Helen Prejean is invited to write to a prisoner on Death Row who brutally killed two teenagers, she has little idea of how much it will change her life. Although she abhors his crime, she befriends one man as he faces the electric chair. 'Dead Man Walking' is Helen Prejean's gripping true story. As powerful an indictment of the death penalty as has ever been written, her book was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
Now a major film starring Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn.
