Based on a true-crime book of the same name, Devil’s Knot deals with the brutal murder of three young boys in Arkansas in 1993. When the police reveal the crime had ‘satanic overtones’, the small community is sent into turmoil.
While the local police force begin a witch hunt, and arrest three young men, private investigator Ron Lax (Colin Firth) becomes convinced that there is more to the
story than the locals are prepared to admit, and begins digging further into the lives of the families involved in this terrible tragedy.
