Based on the successful book and film, Sister Helen Prejean, a catholic nun, receives a letter from a death row inmate by the name of Matthew Poncelet. Poncelet was sentenced to Louisiana’s death row for killing two young teenagers. Although Poncelet was sentenced to death, Carl Vitello, his accomplice, was sentenced to a lesser sentence of life without parole. Poncelet, as depicted by the press, is a volatile criminal who often makes references regarding Hitler as a role model. By becoming Matt’s spiritual advisor, Helen is able to get inside the mind of a convicted killer. With letters and visits, Prejean is able to discover and understand a man that the rest of the world only views as a cold-blooded killer.
