( 1993 )

DIRECTED BY : Kiefer Sutherland

Denver Bayliss (Kiefer Sutherland) is a cold-blooded killer who has been sentenced to death and is awaiting execution and Fred Whitmore ( Forest Witaker) is the haunted prison guard who befriends him: two men forced to live with the violence and degradation of death row.
This is the story of one man sworn to uphold the system and one man who chooses the defy it until death and the shattering effect their struggle has on everyone close to them: the stone-hearted cellblock lieutenant, Denver's estranged sister, and his ex-attorney.

*a great direction*
