Featuring exclusive interviews and spanning half a decade, The Cheshire Murders reveals the untold dramas behind the notorious 2007 triple homicide that rocked the town of Cheshire, Connecticut. In this quiet suburb, Jennifer Petit and her two daughters, age 11 and 17, were brutally murdered in a home invasion; husband William Petit was the only one to survive. Award-winning filmmakers Kate Davis and David Heilbroner interviewed many directly involved with the case who reveal the deep impact of the crime and explore what it means to deliver justice in the wake of such loss. Framed by the media as a parable of good versus evil, the case and its perpetrators became a rallying cry for the death penalty. However, much of the story has been hidden, including systemic breakdowns that failed to prevent the tragedy.
