Retired detective Gordon Davie guides us on a chilling journey into the mind of notorious child murderer James Ryan O'Neill who was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of two young boys after arriving in Tasmania in 1975. He is Tasmania's longest-serving prisoner for a single offence.

Twenty-seven years later, Davie was curious to know the circumstances that led to a good-looking, intelligent young man spending so long in prison. He also wanted to investigate the links between a number of other possible murders and abductions that raise frightening questions about O'Neill's past activities. Over the course of three years Davie and O'Neill built a relationship aided by their shared love of fishing and hunting. Davie takes O'Neill through the story of his life. It is clear that James O'Neill is no ordinary prisoner. He is softly spoken, eloquent and obviously well educated.

This film holds up a torch to a world so dark that most of us can’t even begin to comprehend and poses the question that many of us are reluctant to ask: What does a killer really look like?
