Hope & Redemption:
The Lena Baker Story

Based on the true story, Hope & Redemption: The Lena Baker Story follows the life, trial and execution of Lena Baker. She was the first and only woman to be executed in Georgia's electric chair. She was executed in 1945, after she was convicted of murdering a man who had imprisoned her. In August 2005, Baker was pardoned posthumously by the state Board of Pardons and Paroles. This movie explores the issues behind her trial and conviction.
