The 1924 abduction and brutal thrill-killing of a 14-year-old boy by a duo of wealthy college students comes to life in John Logan’s chilling examination of the impulses that drove Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb to commit what the Chicago Tribune dubbed “The Crime of the Century!” 

In this riveting docudrama, Logan delves into the complex, master-slave relationship between Leopold and Loeb; two self-described “Nietzschean Supermen” of superior intellect who are nonetheless driven by dark, romantic passions and impulses that they find simply irresistible! Based upon actual police records, court documents, and newspaper headlines from the murder investigation and trial, Never the Sinner is a startling, provocative love story set against a backdrop of crime, punishment, and the notorious excess of the Jazz Age!
