Weak attempt at a prison melodrama, in which an idealistic young lawyer attempts to save a woman who has already been incarcerated for 12 years on death row.
One may think that, for this premise, a Hollywood executive saw the film within a film from The Player (qv) and thought it would be a good project to greenlight before they even realised that it was a pisstake of Hollywood's output. Shelve this and watch Dead Man Walking (qv) instead.
