Abstract:

They're charming, they lie effortlessly, and they can commit acts of extreme violence without the slightest twinge of remorse. Are such people born with no conscience? What are their thoughts as they rape, torture, and kill? Is there a way to recognize them before they do harm? In this fascinating documentary, experts trace the roots of psychopathy as they take on the "nature vs. nurture" debate, using medical technology and interviews with criminal offenders to support their theories. Chilling testimony from Congolese child soldiers and former Nazis reveals that even decent people from loving homes can become ruthless murderers ... and are capable of justifying their actions. Some content may be objectionable.
