Summary: After a late night of partying, NYU student Matt Pine returns to his dorm room to learn nearly his entire family-- mom, dad, little brother and sister-- have been found dead from an apparent gas leak while vacationing in Mexico. The local police claim it was an accident, but the FBI and State Department seem far less certain-- and they won't tell Matt why. This isn't the first time the Pine family has been thrust into the media spotlight: Matt's older brother, Danny-- currently serving a life sentence for the murder of his teenage girlfriend Charlotte-- was the subject of a viral true crime documentary suggesting that Danny was wrongfully convicted. But the night Charlotte was killed Matt saw something that makes him believe his brother is guilty of the crime. When Matt returns to his small hometown to bury his parents and siblings, he's faced with a hostile community that was villainized by the documentary, a frenzied media, and memories he'd hoped to leave behind forever.
