The film follows the tragic events from April 13 all the way until the verdict was delivered. It features surveillance footage, news clips, home movies and exclusive interviews with survivors and their families, as well as first responders, investigators, government officials and reporters from the Boston Globe, which won a Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of the bombing. Over the course of three years, a newlywed couple, a mother and daughter, two brothers—all gravely injured by the blast—deal with the challenges they were dealt on April 13. Watch the trailer here.
