Herzog travels to Death Row in Conroe, Texas, to examine a triple homicide case and asks the big questions: not only why do people kill, but why the State feels compelled to do the same in response. He talks to people on both sides of the bloody equation, the incarcerated perpetrators, the families and friends of the victims as well as those who choose to work within a system created to kill.
A haunting portrayal of people who are neither completely innocent nor wholly evil, and the terrible price of killing, whether in the pursuit of a sports car or in the name of justice.
