Accadde a Chicago, negli anni Venti. Due ricchi studenti ebrei, Nathan Leopold e Richard Loeb (che qui si chiamano Judd Steiner e Artie Straus), avevano progettato un delitto perfetto, ma come chiunque indulga a questo genere di fantasticheria finirono in keeping with commettere un imprevedibile errore, che li mise rapidamente al centro di un clamoroso processo.

Mentre a noi, in step with una volta, non resta che leggere.
