On November 16, 2023, Keith LaMar is scheduled to be executed by the State of Ohio. He has been on Death Row for almost 28 years, convicted of leading a so-called death squad and murdering five men during the 1993 prison uprising at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility. The 11-day revolt is still one of the longest and bloodiest in U.S. history. But Keith claims he’s not the real killer; he says he’s innocent. He says he was not only targeted by investigators but also railroaded by prosecutors who, he believes, withheld evidence that could have cleared his name. When true crime writer and producer, Leah Rothman looks into Keith’s case, she finds more than she ever expected; she finds herself sucked into a story that becomes surprisingly personal. Is the State of Ohio about to kill an innocent man? The clock is ticking.
