Monster's Ball | 2001
Hank, an embittered prison guard, lives with his aging racist father, Buck, and his own twentysomething son, Sonny. Hank and Sonny work for the local prison where they are preparing the electric chair for a black inmate. After the man is executed, Hank falls in love with Leticia, the inmate's widow. This emotionally-charged affair forces Hank to re-evaluate how deeply prison work and his father's infectious hatred have affected his soul.
