As a young man is executed for a hate crime, two sets of parents struggle to deal with the consequences. The clock ticks toward midnight and the execution and two families smash into confronting how this happened and who is to blame. Stark and foreboding, the story is told between the lines. It tells you nothing, but you know everything. It compels you to dig deep into the lives of these characters and challenges you not to care. Right out of the headlines, it is an American tragedy. But this film is not about politics or morality or culture. It's about a family.
