| Is there room for mercy?
What if someone has been truly rehabilitated after being sentenced to death. Do you forget the heinous crimes they committed if they cannot remember them? If they are able to help you solve future crimes will you keep them alive? These are the questions that come up in this interesting film starring Randy Quaid (The Last Detail, Brokeback Mountain) and Embeth Davidtz (Bicentennial Man, Bridget Jones's Diary).

He is a convict struck by lightning at the moment of his execution. He lives and can see future crimes. She is the Psychiatrist trying to determine if he should be executed again.

It makes you think about capital punishment, retribution, and forgiveness. Great ending.
