The plot revolves around a husband and wife writing team hired to interview and write an account of the crimes of a convicted serial killer. This begins a long journey of introspection, examination, celebrity, communication, and the ethics of choice as the writing team begins to examine if they are simply relaying terrifying events, or if they are helping the readers consume assault, murder, and mutilation as if they are consuming any other product of our society.

Content warnings for this production include explicit language and graphic descriptions of sexual assault.
