Plot Synopsis

In 2004, the peaceful town of Delmar, New York, is rocked when long-time resident, 21-year-old Chris Porco, is accused of brutally murdering his father, Peter, and disfiguring his mother, Joan, in a savage axe attack. The claim is made all the more shocking when lead detective Joe Sullivan believes Joan had identified Chris as her attacker immediately after she was found near death. Chris, a charming University of Rochester student, professes his innocence even though he is found to have recently fought with his parents about his failing grades and stealing money. Weeks after the crime, Joan refutes Detective Sullivan's story, while the town of Delmar and many of Chris former friends and girlfriends rally to his defense, despite Sullivan's fierce mission to prove his guilt. Prosecutors believed that beneath Chris's picture-perfect facade was a devious and cunning sociopath who would stop at nothing to keep his lies hidden. On August 10, 2006 he was convicted of second-degree murder of his father and attempted murder of his mother. Although sentenced to 25-years-to-life, many in the town of Delmar firmly believe the jury wrongfully convicted an innocent young man.
