ABC’s new crime drama, American Crime, gets its plot from the tragic attack on a young couple, war veteran Matt and his wife, Gwen Skokie, which results in his death and leaves her unconscious, barely clinging to life. As news of the brutal crime makes its way through the media, both sets of parents, played by Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton, Penelope Ann Miller, and W. Earl Brown, sit vigil by Gwen’s bed, hoping for a miracle to keep her with them.

The police investigation begins to close in on four suspects in the case, and shock waves radiate through the community, stirring up tensions along ethnic and racial lines.
