Synopsis

Documentary about the 1993 West Memphis trials in which three teenagers were accused of murdering three eight-year-old boys in a possible miscarriage of justice. The footage takes a look at the case beginning with the arrests of Jessie Misskelley, Damien Echols and Jason Baldwin and features interviews with those concerned, including the accused, their families and lawyers, as well as the parents of the victims. The trial of Misskelley is looked at separately due to his confession, which it is suggested he was coerced into giving. All three teenagers were found guilty with Echols being sentenced to death.
