Summary
We know evil when we see it-or do we? This program follows three people who confront a particular version of evil every day. Viewers meet Roy Ratcliff, the minister who baptized serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer behind bars and continues the practice with other hardened criminals; Aya Schneerson, a UN aid worker who administers food and medical help in the war-torn Democratic Republic of the Congo; and a group of neuroscientists who examine conscience and morality via cutting-edge fMRI imaging techniques. Philip Zimbardo, whose 1971 Stanford Prison Experiment probed abusive aspects of the human mind, shares his library of images from the study.
