In 1895 a 22 year old Italian immigrant is tried in New York City and convicted of murdering the man who promised eternal love, but then drugged and raped her. When Maria Barbella receives her sentence to die in the newly invented electric chair, Cora Slocomb di Brazza, an American heiress and social activist married to an Italian count and living in Italy, mobilizes Manhattan’s tabloid press and high society to save her. Courageously, she also launches the first national campaign against the death penalty. Yet, the powerful inventor Thomas Edison has aligned his forces against Cora and the immigrant girl. As the electric chair can be powered only with the AC current of his rival Westinghouse, the future of Edison’s DC direct current in America depends on Maria’s execution.
