Smugly feeling safe in their own superiority, the pair commit murder - just to show they can. So starts this gripping fictionalized version of the Leopold-Loeb case which shocked Americans and provoked Clarence Darrow, here fictionalized as Jonathan Wilk (Welles), to make an impassioned plea that even these cold killers should not be hung.
