Plot[ edit ] Hank Grotowski, a widower , and his son, Sonny, are correctional officers in a prison in Georgia. They reside with Hank's ailing father, Buck, a bigoted, cold-hearted retired correctional officer whose wife Hank's mother died by suicide. Hank, the prison's deputy warden, will oversee the execution of convicted murderer Lawrence Musgrove. Musgrove, a talented amateur artist, draws a sketch of Sonny. Sonny is a shy and gentle person, who is as kind to Musgrove as his duties permit. Sonny has a brief sexual encounter with a prostitute in a motel and is so lonely that he tries to ask her on a dinner date, but she leaves immediately. The night before the execution, Hank tells Sonny that a "Monster's Ball" is held by the corrections officers, a get-together of those who will participate in the execution.
