Summary
Provocative and chilling true story of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr., the son of a prison worker and a self-taught execution expert who consulted with prisons across the country to make capital punishment more humane. When Leuchter is called in as a high-profile expert in a sensationalized Canadian Nazi war crimes trial, his ego, bravado and absurd testimony reaches international media prominence. Ironically, what Leuchter thought was going to be an apex in his career serves to ruins it
