abstract
Based on the true story of the first woman to be sent to the electric chair in Georgia. Taking place in the 1940s in Cuthbert, Georgia, this is a story of one woman's desperate attempts to rise above the challenges of her life, the choices she makes, and the consequences. She is pressured to work for Elliot Arthur, a father, a mill worker and a raging drunk. As their relationship unfolds, it becomes strained, and is considered unacceptable for that time.

In a final desperate attempt to break free of his bondage, a violent struggle ensues, one hot, humid night in Southwest Georgia in 1945 he is shot by Lena.
