The story of the extraordinary friendship between a death row prisoner and his warden. Read More >

The Ones That Flutter is the life story of death row warden Roddy and Hunter, a prisoner serving his last few hours.

Both alone in the world, they strike up a conversation; it is the start of an extraordinary friendship. As morning approaches and time is running out for Hunter, he appeals to Roddy to stop his execution. Will Roddy stand against his life’s work? In saving Hunter, could he save himself?

The Ones That Flutter is inspired by a true story and set at The Walls, in Texas, US.
