Plot Synopsis

Using re-enactments and first-person interviews, FORBIDDEN: DYING FOR LOVE chronicles true crimes involving star-crossed lovers who defied the forces trying to keep them apart -- but once they crossed that line, anything could happen. Each one-hour episode features a different story, including the series opener, "The Shame of the Father," which documents how two teenagers played with fire by entering into a secret relationship against a father intent on ending their storybook romance. Other forbidden tales uncovered in this series include the single mother whose 18-month jail sentence led to a passionate relationship with a prison guard. But when she vows to leave him, will he let her go? And when a single mother's new fiance asks her to kill his ex-wife and children, will she accept his sinister proposal in the fear her family could be next?
