DEAD MAN TALKING

by Patrick Ridremont

William Demont is sentenced to death. Since the law doesn’t specify how long his last statement can be, he takes advantage of this loophole to tell his whole life story so as to avoid being put to death. His execution then becomes an extraordinary political and media issue.
