Rectify follows the life of Daniel Holden upon his release from jail after serving nineteen years on Georgia's Death Row before DNA evidence disputed the State's original case. Holden, who was only eighteen years of age when convicted and sentenced to die for the brutal rape and murder of a sixteen year old girl, returns to his family and to his hometown where the murder occurred and where many still believe he is guilty. Daniel spent all of his adult life waiting to die. Now he must learn how to live again or decide if he even wants to while others choose whether or not he will have that chance.
Daniel has begun his new life at a halfway house in Nashville. Separated from his family, he struggles to manage life after prison. The family that he left behind is fractured, but not completely broken. Can they find ways to move forward?
Season 2 finds Daniel Holden committed to living in the present. Unfortunately, there are many places and faces in his hometown of Paulie, Georgia that remind Daniel of the past – his incarceration, Hanna, and his role in Hanna’s murder.
