In 1993, West Memphis, Arkansas was rocked by the brutal murders of three 8-year old boys playing in the woods. The police quickly accused three teenage boys, claiming they killed the children as part of a satanic ritual. Professional investigator, Ron Lax, volunteered to represent the accused and was shocked to find that the case was based entirely on circumstantial evidence, prejudiced assumptions of the teenagers' love of goth culture and heavy metal music. He watched in horror as his clients were put on death row as he discovered something far more scary...the truth.
