I have watched many jail shows and documentaries and I am walking away from this thinking this might actually be the best.
It shows various viewpoints of people who when they were young committed a murder. Some seem to feel a lot of guilt, some don't seem to. It shows the way they think about it, what they tried to do, how they tried to get away with it.
