Diana Purlow (Dina Meyer) is the brilliant and fiercely independent psychiatrist testing out a new, cutting edge technology on death row inmates. When she discovers an innocent inmate is about to be executed, she faces the sexual politics of being a woman in a mans world as she attempts to change one man's fate. A painful past with the Governor (Jeff Fahey) threatens to stop her, while her father-like kinship with Lance Henriksen further draws us into this engrossing tale. When she makes the decision to test her technology on the real killer, Jesse Mowatt (Pavan Grover), she discovers a portrait of human potential gone diabolically wrong. Terrified and yet compelled by Mowatt, she continues down the dark path discovering shocking secrets and truths about Mowatt's past and just by "she's the one".
