The protagonist, Paul, is the head of the prison guards who leads the E block. The title "Green Mile" is the corridor between cell cell cells leading to the executive room. The corridor is covered in green linoleum, so the "last" or green miles lead the prisoners to death.

Coffey is special, as Paul discovers and his magical healing powers become apparent. He joins a little white mouse called Mr. Jingles and cures the mouse when the brutal guard Percy Wetmore tried to kill him. Paul also heals the kidney disease, and later Paul admit him from prison to heal the caregiver's wife's brain tumor. Coffey "hands over" this brain sickness to Wetmore, the Sadistic Guard, who the detainees and staff do not like. Wetmore will never return and spend his whole life in a mental institution. Finally, Paul discovers that Coffey is exceptional in many areas. It turns out he did not kill the two girls, another inmate (William Wharton). Coffey does not want to forgive him and dies in the electric chair because he can not bear the cruelty of real life. After his death, Paul discovered that Coffey had all of them a very long life.
