The tragedy sends shock waves into the community, stirring up tensions across racial lines, and connecting victims, suspects, and their families.

When four suspects are arrested, it seems justice will be served. But as secrets are revealed and lives are torn apart, it becomes clear that nothing is as black and white as it seems.

American Crime stars Timothy Hutton (Leverage) and Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewives) as the parents of the murdered war vet, along with Benito Martinez, Johnny Ortiz, Elvis Nolasco, Caitlin Gerard, Richard Cabral, W. Earl Brown and Penelope Ann Miller.
