The movie tells the story of a star student’s decent into the violent, underground world of heroin on the streets of New York. Inspired by what he saw, 14-year old Michael Carneal of Paducah, Kentucky, horrifies the nation when he reenacts the movie’s most violent scene with an unsuspecting group of students in a prayer circle. It’s a copycat killing that forever leaves a small town shaken to its core.
