The Empty Chair: Death Penalty Yes or No?
This one hour documentary tells four stories of murder victims' families reliving the crimes and confronting the loss of loved ones. Their instinct for revenge during trial and the debate for punishment by death climaxes in a search to forgive and heal. Renny Cushing, from Murder Victims' Families for Human Rights, who was also featured briefly in Deadline, is one of the four people the film follows.
