A Lesson Before Dying, based on Ernest J. Gaines' 1993 novel, loosely adapts the true story of a young man twice sentenced to die in the Louisiana electric chair in the 1940s. Romulus Linney's script sets the action in 1948 in a small plantation community in Cajun country. A young man, jailed for a murder he didn't commit, has lost his self-respect and will soon lose his life. He and a young teacher show each other how to face their very different futures with dignity and strength. Presented by Dominion Entertainment (Jar the Floor, Black Nativity) with a cast led by Elisabeth Omilami, Enoch King and Kerwin Thompson.
