Andrés Rabadán caused three trains to derail in 1994 at just 19 years of age. A few days later he turned himself in to the police after killing his father with a crossbow. He was sentenced to a psychiatric ward until he was no longer considered to be a threat to society. In the past fifteen years, Andrés has begun to paint and write, and is now even married. Some psychiatrists believe him to be ''cured'', while others feel that he ought to still be locked up. Yet it is here where the debate begins: does somebody who has committed a horrible crime deserve a second chance?
