A number of somber talking heads frankly describe their most personal and perverse attitudes on sex, violence and other family matters. The actors are reciting lines from horrifying, but authentic texts drawn from the words of Joel Steinberg, the New York lawyer convicted of murdering his child in Greenwich Village; excerpts from Sigmund Freud’s essay "A Child is Being Beaten"; and texts by survivors of Dr. Josef Mengele's medical experiments at the Auschwitz concentration camp. A disturbing composite-drawing of the face of violence in our society, establishing its linkages to family, culture and, ultimately, social organization.
