ABOUT Nineteen years ago, Daniel Holden was sentenced to death for the rape and murder of his teenage girlfriend, Hanna Dean. Daniel is desperate to put the past behind him and accepts a plea deal from the district attorney, confessing to Hanna's murder.
“Rectify” follows the life of Daniel Holden (Aden Young), who returns to his small hometown in Georgia after serving 19 years on death row. Having spent his entire adult life in prison, Daniel must now try to find a way to cope with his past and forge a “normal” life with an unexpected future before him. While doubts surround the circumstances of his original conviction, Daniel affects everyone he encounters in different and profound ways -- his very fractured family, his community and even strangers.
