Summary

Summary

César Fierro, the oldest Mexican prisoner on death row in the United States, has been languishing in a Texas prison for over thirty years. His sentence has been put off repeatedly as the contradictory details of his initial trial have been reviewed. The prosecuting attorney stated that he would not have proceeded with the trial had these details been revealed. César continues to await execution by lethal injection for a murder that evidence shows he did not commit. One of the most painful consequences of César's incarceration is the effect that the injustice and separation has had on his younger brother, Sergio, demonstrating how this miscarriage of justice resonates beyond one wrongfully imprisoned man. The Years of Fierro is a compassionate portrayal of César Fierro and the psychological hardship that he endures while awaiting his final day.
