A single act of fatal violence has turned a family upside down, but the murder follows a dark series of precursors that transcend multiple generations. Paris, who killed his 4-year-old sister when he was 13, recounts his life before and after the incident from prison. As this film unravels the psyches of its subjects, it explores the behavioral and genetic traits that Paris’ family members share. His mother, Charity, struggles to reconcile the brutal act of her son with the forgiveness she seeks on a daily basis. Paris remains close with his grandmother, whose sinister, melodramatic past is a source of pride for her. In this fascinating true crime story, secrets hide in plain sight, but the future remains obscured. -KM
