    • Synopsis
    • In 1999, Sean Sellers, sentenced to death at the age of 16, is executed in Oklahoma despite protest around the world. A few days before, the filmmaker David André filmed Sean on death row. He also met, during the plea for clemency, the family of his victims demanding his execution, where the youth begged for his life. 10 years after Sellars’ death, haunted by the memory of this story, the filmmaker returned to Oklahoma to find the film’s protagonists and the answer to one question: is the death sentence really a remedy or does it act like a poison on those who took part?
