It's present day, 2012, and a young journalist is hired by the police to interview a man in custody. The said captive is known only by the name Reid, and he doesn't seem to want to talk to anyone, even under the threat of the death penalty, except for someone who can write his biography. Over the next three days, Reid will tell the young man his whole life story, and boy...is it something special.
