When the body of eleven-year-old Thuy Sen is found in San Francisco Bay, the police swiftly charge Rennell and Payton Price with her grisly murder. A twelve-person jury, helped along by an incompetent lawyer for the defence, is quick to find the brothers guilty - and to sentence them both to die for their crimes.
Twelve years later, payton is day from his execution, and overworked pro bono lawyer, Teresa Peralta Paget, her husband, Chris, and stepson, Carlo, a recent Yale law graduate, become convinced not only that Rennell didn't receive a fair trial, but that he's innocent. Racing against the clock and against insurmountable legal obstacles, Teresa, Chris and Carlo desperately try and stop the execution of an innocent man.
