Synopsis: 

Arthur Poe (Cris D'Annunzio) is a sadistic killer who likes to torture his victims. In 1993 he was captured and subsequently convicted by the state of Virginia for several gruesome murders. Poe received a sentence of death. Years later and days before his execution, the newly-elected governor granted Poe clemency based on the testimony of a forensic psychologist at Poe's murder trial. The testimony convinced the governor that Poe deserved psychiatric care rather than death. Many are outraged by the governor's act of leniency. A reporter (Maury Morgan) confronts Poe in an interview seeking to shed light on the emotionally charged topic. What she learns can never be forgotten.
