Two young men shoot themselves in a churchyard. Ray Belknap dies; James Vance - severely disfigured - survives. Their parents take heavy-metal icons Judas Priest to court, claiming the band "mesmerized" their sons. The unprecedented trial is the framework for this one-of-a-kind, Emmy-nominated documentary.


"Riveting!" - The New York Times

"Grade: A" - Entertainment Weekly

"Destined to cause a stir. Not just the band, but the parents, the kids, and maybe even the judicial system are all on trial before the camera. Even-handed, sympathetic, but ultimately heartbreaking." - The Hollywood Reporter

"Not for the faint of heart." - Vogue

"A monumental showdown between irreconcilable generations. A nightmare glimpse into America's spiritual drought and the way people fill that void with diametrically opposed faiths." - Interview Magazine
