Description
In October 1998, University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, brutally beaten, and left for dead tied to a fence in the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His death and the aftermath of the trial uncovered an ugly story of homophobia, hate, alienation, and intolerance. A series of interviews with the people of Laramie developed a powerfully theatrical mosaic of a community forced to look at the darkness of humanity and searching to find compassion and understanding.
