An extended interview with Vasily Shulgin, a right wing Russian politician and member of the pre-revolutionary Russian parliament, who later, in Europe, set up an anti-Soviet military force during the Second World War. Captured by Soviet forces in 1945, he spent the next couple of decades in prison. The interview takes him through his life, with archival footage, in order to prove him "historically wrong," but the wily Shulgin often gets the upper hand on his Soviet interviewer - causing the film to be shelved shortly after its release.

Each year in the United States, over 200,000 prisoners face a parole board that must make the difficult judgment of whether these convicted criminals are ready to gain their freedom and return to society. This documentary focuses on three inmates in Louisiana, Nevada, and Massachusetts with a range of chilling crimes - a father's murder by his troubled son, a crime of passion by a respected NASA scientist, and a shooting/robbery on the streets of Las Vegas. Incorporating interviews of key characters with extensive testimony footage and reenactment sequences that explore the life and crime of the inmate, the film vividly examines the conflicting needs of the victim, the criminal, and the community while testing our own notions of justice.
