Coy Wesbrook was sentenced to death for killing five people in an apparent fit of jealous rage and is just hours from execution by lethal injection. He is deemed by his lawyer to be mentally impaired and therefore not fully responsible for his actions, but he has exhausted all his appeals. The only hope Coy has are the picketing protesters outside the prison walls. Coy's story is told via his daughter as she recounts her father's crime and the impact it has had on the remaining family.
