West Of Memphis

/ /
The story of a miscarriage of justice.

The shocking 1993 murders of three eight year old boys in West Memphis, Arkansas, has been thoroughly discussed in the HBO-produced documentary series Paradise Lost, which pointed to the flaws of the justice system and pleaded the innocence of the three teenagers that were convicted with the murders. WEST OF MEMPHIS continues where the last film left off, and investigates the progress of the case and the surprising new clues which have surfaced after the case was pronounced closed.
