Abstract:

Matthew Poncelet is the convicted killer of two teenage lovers, preparing to end his life on death row. In response to a letter, Sister Helen Prejean visits Matthew and finds herself face-to-face with a killer who still pleads his innocence. When the date is set for his execution death by lethal injection, Poncelet asks Sister Helen to be his spiritual advisor and she agrees, little knowing the outrage that will follow her decision.

Matthew Poncelet, un criminel endurci, attend son exécution à la prison Angola en Nouvelle-Orléans. Il écrit à une religieuse, lui demandant son aide. Soeur Helen Prejean s'occupe des pauvres dans un quartier noir, et soucieuse de porter secours à tout homme souffrant, elle se rend au pénitencier et rencontre Poncelet. Helen Prejean, qui a décidé de l'aider à obtenir une grâce auprès de la cour, s'implique de plus en plus dans l'affaire, suscitant des réactions négatives de la part des parents des victimes. Face à un véritable problème de conscience, elle choisit d'aller jusqu'au bout.
