"The maximum security mental health center at Penetanguishene, Ontario, is a hospital for the criminally insane. Through interviews and during the therapy sessions of the patients themselves (including a glimpse into 'the capsule," which patients enter voluntarily as a way to break down psychological reserve), Thin Line shows the capacity for understanding and human compassion in these men who have committed some of the most brutal crimes, including rape, assault, and murder."
