About the show

In Mississippi, a beautiful teenage transsexual, Mercedes Williamson, is killed by her gang-member boyfriend Josh. With Josh sentenced to life, a series of interviews reveal the truth behind his relationship with Mercedes. An alleged homosexual hate-crime in North Carolina sees a church under suspicion and a racially-motivated murder in Mississippi tears a community in two.

Interviews with police, prosecutors, perpetrators and friends of the victims, as well as witness accounts and court testimony expose crime stories with an emotional twist and a sting in the tail.
