  • "Herzog richt zich in deze documentaire op een drievoudige moord die tien jaar geleden gepleegd werd in Conroe, Texas. Aan het woord komen de nabestaanden, maar ook de veroordeelden, met inbegrip van de man in de dodencel, acht dagen voor zijn executie. Het schijnbare motief voor de moorden was om een auto te stelen om daarmee te kunnen joyriden. De veroordeelde moordenaars zijn twee tieners, Michael Perry en Jason Burkett, die een geschiedenis van drugsmisbruik en geweldpleging hebben. Ze ontkennen hun eigen aandeel en geven elkaar de schuld. Herzog duikt in de erfenis van deze misdaad en in de psyche van de betrokken personen."
  • "Le 24 octobre 2001, dans la petite ville de Conroe au Texas, Jason Burkett et Michael Perry, en quête d'une voiture à voler, abattent de sang-froid Sandra Stotler, son fils Adam et l'ami de ce dernier, Jeremy. Rapidement arrêtés, les deux jeunes hommes de 19 ans sont condamnés, Burkett à la prison à perpétuité, Perry à la peine capitale. Neuf ans plus tard, le cinéaste allemand Werner Herzog s'interroge sur les circonstances entourant ce drame, mais aussi, plus largement, sur la pulsion meurtrière et l'industrie de la mort aux États-Unis. Le réalisateur a alors l'occasion de rencontrer les familles des victimes, mais également Michael, à quelques jours de son exécution, ainsi qu'un aumônier et un ancien bourreau qui, chacun à leur façon, l'aident à répondre à la question qui motive son film: "Pourquoi tuer?"."
