My Dad's on Death Row
John Battaglia was due to be picked up by the police in the morning, for violating his parole again. He was granted one last visit with his daughters, Faith, aged 9, and Liberty, 6 years old. When the girls’ mother talked with them on the phone, they were frightened. All she heard was them pleading ‘no, daddy, don’t!’ – followed by the sound of a gunshot. She screamed down the phone ‘Run girls, run!’ This documentary explores two horrific stories. With haunting interviews with the killers, plus emotional exchanges with the daughters, this brand new film presents two extraordinary crimes and their criminals in a open, revealing and honest light. Beautifully shot and with extraordinary access and co-operation from the murderers, Texan prison and staff, and even some protesters fighting for the life of one of the convicts, this film is a captivating look at true crime, and the families left behind.
