I was reminded of an episode of the original Star Trek. In it we find that those mining a certain substance turn violent when in the mines. Kirk tries to convince the ruling class that this is happening and to end their conflicted relationship. In this offering, an elderly researcher who has been doing work of great importance) strangles a cleaning woman outside his lab. He is duly convicted and sentenced to death (the old electric chair). This violence was totally out of character for him and leaves his friends and relatives searching for answers. A new guy comes along (Macdonald Carey) comes in to take over the man's work. His associates waver back and forth between joyous acceptance and violent disdain. At one point, two relatively quiet people get into a fight. I probably don't need to get into any of the details; you can guess the results.
