The Penalty (86mins)
Three extraordinary people embark on journeys of recovery, discovery and rebellion and find themselves center stage in the biggest capital punishment crisis in modern memory. The Penalty unearths an America where grieving families, botched executions and wrongful convictions force us to question what we think we know about the death penalty.

The screening is free to attend and open to the public.
