  • "This program, based on a well-publicized Minnesota case, examines one family's efforts to bring closure to the brutal murder of a loved one. The family insists on confronting the killers to ask them disturbing questions that have plagued the family over a three-year period. In doing so, they hope to bring the monstrous act and its perpetrators into human focus as a major step toward healing ... This is an intimate and riviting glimpse into a bold new approach to criminal justice designed to heal both the offenders and their victims."
