The dawning of the electric age in 1890’s America brought about massive technological and social change creating winners and losers. A gang of death row convicts are set free for one wild night to tell the tragic story of their hero: the man who invented the electric chair. These convicts give an ironic twist to the true tale of how Thomas Edison and a dentist become entangled in this invention, in the name of progress.
