Paul Crump, who robbed the Chicago stockyards on March 20, 1953, with four other black men, shot one guard to death. He was sentenced to die in the electric chair. William Friedkin met Crump in the Cook County Jail. Friedkin was impressed by the "model prisoner", Crump. Friedkin produced this documentary as an impassionate plea for Crump's return to society.
