Both a gripping true-crime story and an incisive portrait of a community, this acclaimed documentary from Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky delves into the peculiarities surrounding the case of Delbert Ward, a poor, reclusive dairy farmer from the town of Munnsville, New York, who was accused of murdering his brother William. Was William’s death a mercy killing—or something more sinister? As surprising details emerge, a media circus descends upon Munnsville and transforms the fabric of this tight-knit rural village.
