Staten Island, probably the biggest "dump" ever (of garbage, patients, psychos, you name it) becomes the inevitable breeding ground for a society that creates a folklore serial killer - and then looks for its human embodiment. A series of child abduction and murders in the 70s is the core of this creepy documentary, not necessarily focusing on who committed the crimes (although there is a central culprit here), but rather the psychosocial mentality that surrounds them. Crude evidence doesn't really matter; to determine a person's guilt, it mainly depends on who the witnesses are and where they're coming from.
