20-year-old Mason Jenkins was convicted of brutally murdering his 18-year-old sister with multiple rifle shots to the head and chest. Overwhelming forensic evidence delivered an airtight case against him, yet Mason maintained his innocence, forcing his grief-stricken parents into a difficult decision: break with their son or stand by him unconditionally. Compiled from astonishing footage shot over a 10-year period, Life With Murder follows the evolving relationship of a family struggling to survive in the wake of tragedy.
