"This twenty-one-year-old man is filmed while serving a penitentiary sentence. He had been stealing cars since he was ten. He steals them on impulse, makes no criminal use of the cars and generallly returns them; joy rides, often challenging police to chase him. He seems perfectly normal, is attractive and intelligent and has many friends. The film begs the question - is it a medical or legal problem? Filmed at the Kingston Penitentiary."
