Legendary documentarian Barbara Kopple explores the legacy of the 1989 murder of Noreen Boyle in Mansfield, Ohio. Boyle’s 12-year-old son Collier gave a devastating videotaped testimony blaming his father for the murder. Now, over two decades later, Collier returns to Ohio seeking to retrace his past and confront his imprisoned father.
Collier’s depth of character is a wonder to behold from childhood to adulthood. Out of this tragic story, we witness the power of human resilience.
An emotional gut-punch as potentially cathartic for the audience as it is for its protagonist.
