It’s 1979 and there’s a vicious serial killer on the loose named ‘Seed’. Seed has a penchant for locking his victims away in dark cells leaving them to die, videotaping them the entire time. Soon Seed is captured and sent to death row to await his execution. In the meantime, the state pen has some problems with their electric chair; it’s old and faulty and doesn’t do a very good job. This is cause for concern since Seed's execution is coming up and he's quite a hefty guy.
