Lindy Lou Wells

In 1982 Bobby Wilcher stabbed to death two women he met at a Mississippi bar. Twelve years later Lindy Lou Wells served on the jury that sentenced him to die – a decision that unexpectedly upended her life. Determined to understand the overwhelming regret that she has been grappling with for years, Lindy takes off on a road trip across Mississippi to track down and learn more about her fellow jurors tasked with deciding the fate of a man’s life all those years earlier. Lindy, a conservative, religious woman from the South, manages to tackle this oft-politicized topic with an open mind and sincere curiosity.'LINDY LOU, JUROR NUMBER 2,' directed by Florent Vassault, has its national broadcast and streaming debut on the PBS documentary series POV and pov.org on Monday, July 16, 2018, at 10 p.m. (check local listings) on PBS.
