The Friedmans seem at first to be a typical family - until one Thanksgiving while they are gathered at home preparing for a quiet holiday dinner, a police battering ram splinters the front door and officers rush into the house searching every corner and seizing boxes of the family's possessions. Arnold and his 18-year old son Jesse are both arrested. As the police pursue the investigation, and the community reacts, the fabric of the family begins to disintegrate, revealing disturbing questions.
