With a complete loss of rationality, a young man stabs a stranger in a crowded mall. The crime should have got him a stiff sentence but he was declared not criminally responsible on account of his psychosis. Are criminals getting away easily with this provision in the Canadian judicial system? Directed by four-time Emmy Award winner, John Kastner, the documentary brings to light this debate with interviews of the victim and the accused.
