His name was Ted Kaczynski, he became known to the world as the Unabomber. This film sets out to discover who exactly was Ted Kaczynski and what was it that drove him to commit such acts of terrorism. Through a number of interviews with family members and those who worked the case we gradually delve deeper into the mind of Kaczynski.
