Plot Synopsis

Based on the book by Philip Carlo. Kit, an attorney, travels to San Quentin on an impossible mission to clear the name of Harrison Johnson, a death row inmate in Texas whom she believes has been wrongly accused of murders perpetrated by Richard Ramirez. Kit lived in Los Angeles during the fear-tinged summer where Ramirez terrified its citizens and confronting him dredges up old and frightening memories of her own past. As the days count down to the Texas man's execution, Kit confronts Ramirez about his unspeakable crimes in search of an elusive confession, plunging into intense psychological depths in her quest for the truth. Richard Ramirez was a cruel and prolific serial killer who murdered 14 people and terrorized Los Angeles in the summer of 1985. Though Ramirez was ultimately convicted of these atrocities and remained on death row for nearly 30 years, suspicion loomed of him having committed additional crimes.
