It's 1959, and the celebrated author of Breakfast at Tiffany's is desperate for a new subject. Deep in rural Kansas a family of four is brutally murdered. In an unlikely conjunction, the flamboyant, homosexual Capote sets out to investigate the case...
The result was a gripping book about humanity's capacity for evil, In Cold Blood
But what are Capote's own motives as he waits impatiently for the death sentence to be carried out so that he can finish his masterpiece?
