Synopsis: The debate on death penalty is loud and impassioned. Instead of echoing that cacophony, The Death of Us, quietly reflects on several cases in which the death penalty was pronounced. Speaking to those who have been on death row, or others closely involved with such cases, the film attempts to evolve a more nuanced dialogue on questions around crime and punishment, revenge and justice, popular rhetoric and personal experiences.
