My Days of Mercy

Can love bloom on death row? Lucy e Martha Seimetz are sisters and are fervent supporters of the abolition of the death penalty, in fact, whenever possible they protest, moving from one prison to another in the Midwest. During a demonstration taking place outside a prison, Lucy and Mercy gaze at each other and there is an immediate mutual attraction. But an apparently insuperable barrier seems to divide them: Mercy is supporting the execution of a condemned prisoner, found guilty of killing a colleague of her father, who was a policeman, while Lucy's father is in jail and is facing the death penalty… The actors are Ellen Page, nominated for an Academy Award and for a Golden Globe for Juno, who here plays the role of Lucy, and Kate Mara, nominated for an Emmy Award for her role in "House of Cards". In this emotional and social drama presented at the last Toronto International Film Festival, she plays the role of Mercy.
