 Rectify season 1

"After spending 19 years on Death Row for the rape and murder of his teenage girlfriend, Daniel Holden is going home. His conviction has been vacated due to new DNA evidence, thrusting him back into a world he no longer knows. Having spent his adult life waiting to die, Daniel must now learn how to live again. But, his reentry into the outside world may be as unforgiving as prison. He is haunted by the past, dogged by the present, and uncertain of the future. As he struggles to adapt to his new life, his return will reignite the fears of a small town and threaten to shatter his family's fragile peace. Daniel's alleged crime divided a community. His freedom could tear it in half."

Rectify season 2

"Nineteen years ago, Daniel Holden was sentenced to death for the rape and murder of his teenage girlfriend, Hanna Dean. Thanks to newly discovered DNA evidence and the efforts of his sister Amantha and lawyer, Daniel’s conviction has been vacated. Season 2 of the Peabody Award-winning series "Rectify" 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."

"Rectify" has won a Peabody Award, and both Young and supporting star Abigail Spencer have been nominated for Critics' Choice Awards for their performances.

"Rectify" has been lauded by many critics for the exemplary performances of its cast members. It is a slow-burn family drama that examines Daniel Holden's (Aden Young) sudden release into the world from prison. Daniel's own mental battle and the impact on his family and a small town community is dramatized as he struggles to get his life back. Daniel was in prison from a very young age and he is still perceived after 17 years as a teenager with erratic behavior. The performance of Daniel Holden played by Aden Young is flawless. Eden really enlightens his character with his portrayal of a fragile mind which is being haunted by thoughts and memories. J. Smith-Cameron who plays Janet Talbot, a mother, has been wondering for almost two decades if Daniel really committed the crime he was imprisoned for. She realizes that she loves him anyway regardless if Daniel is guilty of innocent.


In season 3 the characters in "Rectify" will go on an emotional journey with the need to let go and make decisions.

 The viewers of the show will be always wondering—if Daniel is guilty or innocent which is the most unquestionable and magnetizing secret of the of the series. Daniel spent 17 years in a hard core prison and came out mentally scarred and feeling guilty, but he isn’t completely sure about what he is guilty of. The emotional roller coaster is unbelievable.

"Rectify" embodies what SundanceTV is all about bold, intelligent, and deep storytelling.

 The pace of the series has been defined as slow which is a result of the beauty of the show. The unspoken language is persuasive and compelling, and seeing the most magnificent actors in scenes with their emotional exchange is certainly captivating. "Rectify", is like poetry with actors and is a piece of art.
