last breath (Aus)

official selection

A web series inspired by the stories of real Australian women executed or imprisoned for life for murder. 
Set in a grim waiting cell with just a chair, Last Breath is about the moment before each character is either brought to the gallows or about to be brought back into the court for sentencing. They are in that limbo world, that moment of breath before everything changes.
