What drives a man to kill? Winner of two awards at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival, filmmaker Arthur Dong goes inside prison to probe the minds and souls of men whose attitudes towards homosexuality have led them to murder. Hailed as superb by Rolling Stone and called a chilling look at the real face of evil by the Los Angeles Times, Dong's hour long, broadcast length version of the film offers a provocative and disturbingly candid exploration of the motivations behind a plague of violence that is sweeping the nation.
