David Gale (Kevin Spacey) is an activist and academic devoted to abolishing the death penalty.  When a disgruntled student accuses him of rape his career and marriage are destroyed.  Worse still a close friend of David's has been killed, and his fingerprints were found at the scene.  He is subsequently convicted of murder and sentenced to death. 

A newspaper agrees to pay Gale $1 million for an interview prior to his execution.  As David tells the reporter his story she begins to doubt the prisoner's guilt, and struggles to unravel the truth before yet another innocent life is taken.
