Carroll Picket was the death house chaplain in Huntsville, Texas for 15 years. This film tells his story of presiding over 95 executions, including that of Carlos De Luna, who was almost certainly not guilty of the crime for which he was killed.
With the legislature about to vote on a bill to repeal the death penalty, this film is indeed timely. A discussion will follow.
