Synopsis

Based on the actual events of the West Memphis Three, where three young boys were savagely murdered in West Memphis, Arkansas in 1993. Spurred on by the demand from a grieving town, the local police act quickly to bring three “devil-worshipping” teenagers to trial. With their lives hanging in the balance, investigator Ron Lax is trying to find the truth between the town’s need for justice and the guilt of the accused.

    A respectful but overly restrained dramatisation of true events – the real story is far more devilish and knotty than the film suggests.

    Truth is stranger than fiction . . . and that’s the problem.
