In this gripping series of films, Academy-Award nominated filmmaker Werner Herzog (Into the Abyss, Grizzly Man) delves deeper into the abyss of the human soul. Through interviews with five inmates awaiting their appointment with a lethal injection in the Texas and Florida prison systems, Herzog conducts a uniquely thought-provoking analysis of why people, and the state, kill. Each of the four episodes features an intense interview with a death row inmate in which we hear their own account of life in captivity and the crime that condemned them. Herzog explores the emotions that these men and women go through as they possess the haunting knowledge of exactly when - and how - they are going to die. Utterly gripping, Death Row packs a strong emotional punch and is a truly unmissable experience.
