What is the plot line of the movie My Days Of Mercy?
The film’s story revolves around the anti-death penalty protesters named Lucy and Martha, whose father was sentenced to death for the murder of his wife eight years ago. Lucy lives in Ohio with his sister, Martha, and younger brother, Ben. They travel to different destinations for their father’s cause and protests.
During a protest outside the prison, Lucy meets Mercy, a lawyer from the opposing party. Lucy and Mercy belong to opposing political views and parties, yet develop a bond of friendship. They get in touch after exchanging phone numbers and adding each other on Skype. They soon fall in love and meet in different destinations.
On the other hand, Martha still believes her father is innocent and thus tries to free him from the death penalty. She hires a lawyer, who successfully postpones the death penalty for four months, giving them time to investigate the loopholes and gather the evidence to reopen the case. However, the plan does not work and the appeal is rejected by the court. After facing reality, Lucy travels to Illinois to meet Mercy, but feels cheated after seeing that Mercy lives with her parents and also has a boyfriend. Yet Mercy attends Simon’s execution.
The next scene starts after six months and shows Lucy working as a waitress in California. Mercy finds Lucy and tries to rebuild the band, but Lucy rejects her. However, they soon plan a date later.
