The story begins when a beloved community little league baseball coach and father Terry Maitland is arrested for the murder of a young boy. Terry insists he's innocent, but a ton of evidence, including video footage and eyewitness accounts, would suggest otherwise. Except more evidence, including other video footage, proves he didn't do it. So, what's really going on?
