An alarming docu-drama, which explores the criminal mind. A delinquent foster child, Jack Henry Abbott was imprisoned at a young age. He was robbed of nurturing, cut off from any human contact for more than twenty years. Knowing only primal survival instincts, he lived a constant struggle to remain human, like a solitary light bulb flickering in and out of Sanity. Once released into the world, the ravishing beast inside took over any human spirit he had left.
